It looks like you might have something from the beetle family of bugs.
Maybe a black fabric or carpet beetle. They do not bite but can do damage to clothing and carpet. The pantry beetle also looks similar but your pictures blur out if enlarged.

You can always send your bug questions/pictures to your county extension office and ask for advice;
ask.extension.org/ask

Most advice given on how to remove them is to vacuum several times, especially if you see anymore around the house.
Here are recommendations from the extension office:
"Vacuum all areas thoroughly. Put clean woolens away in sealed containers.Check stored food products and spices for infestations and dispose of infested material. Store all herbs, spices, and dried food products in airtight containers."

Here are a couple of information links but these also have pictures of different kinds of bugs.

This looks like a Attagenus Pellio- better known as a Fur Beetle or Carpet Beetle. This beetle loves to destroy textiles , fabrics , like clothing , furniture. Not harmful to humans. en.wikipedia.org/.../attagenus_pellio
