A beetle of some sort.
I can't tell you exactly which species, but I can assure you that it's nothing harmful. :)

Welcome to BugGuide!

Good! I’m not too familiar with bugs and I’ve only seen one of these last night crawling on my rug and freaked that it was a roach nymph or something but I’ve been looking at pictures of roach nymphs all night and it didn’t look the same as what I saw... thank you for putting my mind at ease... :)
