I am really concerned with this since I've never seen a cocoon this color before and can't find it anywhere on the internet. I found it just laying on the ground not attached to anything, but it seems to be alive because when you touch it, it will wiggle abit. Any answers are appreciated.

I think I may have found your cocoon: it appears to be a Magpie Moth (Abraxas grossulariata) cocoon:

According to UK Moths, it's common in the UK.
