BedbugParanoiaFilter: I found a mosquito-looking bite on my torso. Can you get mosquito bites in the winter or should I be concerned about bedbugs?

It's whitish in the centre with a spreading red area around it, which is exactly how my mosquito bites tend to look (I am slightly allergic). It does not itch, however, like my mosquito bites usually do. I've inspected myself thoroughly and can find no other bites.
I do live in Vancouver, Canada where bedbugs have been a problem. I also ride public transit all the time which is supposed to be where a lot of people pick them up.
Could this be bedbugs? How can I check my apartment for bedbugs? I am really panicky about the thought because I can't afford to pay an exterminator and replace my stuff, and I don't even have anywhere else to stay.
Anonymous because I'm embarrassed about my paranoia. Thanks.
