Does it have legs at all? From this view it looks like a baby leech

Hi it looks remarkably like a flea before it changes to it's "hoppable" state. If it is, the flea eggs will have hatched out into this worm like larva. you could put it in a sealed jam jar which will give you time to see what it becomes. If it is a flea you will need to have help to sort your place from somewhere like rentokil.

I might be a meal worm. This is a photo.

I would put it in a sealed plastic bag and take it to any place that sells pesticides. They can help you.

Sorry - There are members/readers of ThriftyFun in the US and many other countries so not knowing where you live and no more information than what is given will make it difficult for someone to help you.

There are probably hundreds of bugs that look similar (the photo bug is very small) and this could be a young bug that will change in a few days.
I agree with Sandi that it looks like a mealworm but since we do not even know where (indoors, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen) the bug was found or does it bite or if there are a lot of them or how long have you been seeing them it is only a guess at the most.

If you are finding them in your kitchen then it could be mealworms. Mealworms can get into and ruin stored flour, pet food, mill feed, cereal and other dry goods.

You might want to try 20 Mule Team Borax or Diatomaceous Earth (Food grade only).
