Found this bug on my bed... What bug is it?

Just found this bug on my bed... I have never seen a bed bug before but i compare it to bed bug images and it looks different from a bed bug. But i cant really tell... What bug is it and should i worry about it? Thanks!

(I put a Jamieson vitamin C tablet next to it to compare the size)

Not a bed bug. Just a bug that unfortunately for it, got onto your bed. Looks like some kind of beetle, so I wouldn't worry.

Why not use a coin like a dime or nickel for size reference? Pills can be so many different sizes.

I figured it was a dinner plate and was going to suggest grabbing a baseball bat to kill the prehistoric beast.

I once found this (below) in my bed. Sorry I couldn't provide a vitamin to compare with.

I use my measuring tape all the time. Used it dozens of times this past weekend, because I am renovating my fireplace. What else do people use?
