Looks like your bug belongs to the carpet beetle family.
These can be brought into your home with plants, clothing or just find ways through cracks in screens, doors, etc.

When you find one it is best to do a thorough cleaning, especially vacuuming your rugs (move furniture), also clean any 'fabric' furniture. Discard cleaner bags in outside garbage container.
Here are some links to read so you can find different ways to eliminate these bugs (they like clothing - especially wool also).

The pattern indicates a carpet beetle. Vacuum thoroughly and throw the bag outside. Use an insecticide.
