If not a bed bug, what kind of bug is this?

This is NOT a bed bug. It is a grain beetle - typically a pantry pest.

Nothing to worry about.

Check your crackers, cereal, oats, flour, etc. Dispose of anything infested. Store all others in containers with tight fitting lids, and/or in the fridge.
Here is a good factsheet.
