I think I saw a bed bug on a wall near my bed. What now?

So last night, I noticed a small black dot moving across my wall. I killed it and threw it in the trash. Then I thought, oh shit, what if it was a goddamn bed bug. Here are the important facts:
- It was small, round, dark brown, with six legs, antenna, and slow moving
- It was flat - so kind of hard to kill and was a little crunchy - no blood squeezed out - definitely not squishy
- I have no bites, welts, rashes, etc...
- I cannot find evidence of bed bugs on my mattress, bed sheets, or bed frame
Now what? Do I get the bed bug inspection people to come over? It certainly sounds like a bed bug but I can't be sure. I really wish I had a picture to show but I cannot find it. It was dry so it fell to the bottom of the trash can where it's irretrievable.
