I hope this critter (pictured) is not a bedbug...

Is this critter I found crawling through my leg hair (jpg)
a young bedbug? I have not noticed any bites, no red or black marks on my cream colored sheets. I got a dresser via craigslist but so far have only draped clothes on top of it, not inside. NYC.

Most pictures of bedbugs look more round and like ticks, but I did see a few photos of less mature bedbugs that looked kind of like this. The coin is a penny.
If it is a bedbug, and I assume that it must have come here in the dresser, would it be sufficient to treat the clothing draped on the dresser (hot wash/dry) and use a heat gun on all the crevices in the dresser?
