I recently found at least 50 of these little bugs roaming around my window sills indoors in my bedroom right behind the head of my bed. I can’t seem to find what they are. I’d love tips on what they are or how to get rid of them. They’re extremely small probably no larger than 1 mm. I tried vacuuming them away but I still see plenty of them.

These are very likely mites (notice their small size and 8 legs). Based on their size, appearance, and abundance, I'd guess they're bird mites (family Macronyssidae). Since they're near your window, I assume you either have a bird nest outside your window or frequent bird visitors to your window.
