small brown bugs on bed, i don't know where they're coming from or what they are

so recently (in the past two months or so), i started seeing small little brown bugs show up and walking around on my bed (and sometimes me.) i have tried to identify them multiple times but have had no luck. can anyone help me figure out what these are? im terrified of all bugs and the fact that i cant figure out what these are or where they're coming from is scaring and starting to worry me. i just recently got a new bed spread so it isn't that. and when i was putting on my sheets and everything i checked my mattress and there was no sign of any bug. i need serious help!
