We have a forum on Insect and Spider Identification here:
and if you post your question there, you may get some help,

Having said that I will say that as far as I can tell from your photo, your little insect is NOT a bed bug. The shape looks to me like an adult (winged) beetle. Bed bugs are flightless even as adults. Take a look ay the picture here of all the life stages of a bed bug:
