I found these little bugs in a glue trap that I set for mice.

They are curled up so I had trouble counting the legs. They're tiny... about 3mm body length.

Can anyone tell me what kind of bug this is and whether I need to be worried about it?

Spider beetles - primarily nuisance pests; sometimes will infest dry stored food products, but usually only those that already are damaged/degraded in some way - http://www.orkin.com/other/beetles/shiny-spider-beetle/.
