Help please? Is it a Carpet Beetle?

Hello All

Please can I have some help identifying the bug I found IN my 2 year olds BED today?  I found this forum and the first picture I saw was of a carpet beetle and it looked a bit like 'mine'.  We also just noticed another one on the living room (painted) wall.

I *think* I've seen one or two before in the house but during better weather and assumed they had wandered/flown in through the open patio doors.

The second photo looks faded because of the camera flash on the white paper. The first picture has the colours enhanced and looks much more like the actual bug.

What ever it is, should I be concerned about finding two in my house with in a few hours, in February!, on different floors, one IN a bed?  Whats the best way to get rid asap?  I'm expecting i need to do lots of cleaning - which is difficult for me due to a back problem, but our house is by no means dirty (or so i thought)! 

Thanks in advance for any replies, I'm very grateful.
