What’s this insect in my room?

I have an insect which appears a few days back. I thought it would be a ladybug but it has a weird pattern at the back tho... should I be worried?

It normally doesn’t move very much. Mostly at night while I’m sleeping.

    A varied carpet beetle, totally harmless. No call for concern unless overrun with them.

    Their caterpillar stage, they may eat on natural fibers like cloths moths.

    No caterpillars, no worries.

    That appears to the varied carpet beetle. If I saw it, it wouldn't worry me.  They are common and relatively harmless.
