It just has to be in my bedroom and I just woke up bc I hear intense clawing and chewing and just like something moving around, and its obviously bigger than a rat. I have NO idea what it could be! Possibly a raccoon? But there's not too much of those around here. I'm just really freaked out and scared bc it sounds like its INSIDE my room, and I have thick walls so idek. Who do I call? What do I do? Should I be this worried?

Oh sorry, that's just me. I'll try to keep it down.
No seriously though, I've had racoons in my attic, and there's squirrels in the walls every year. There's no reason to be scared; it's not an uncommon problem and yet there are virtually no cases of the pests actually burrowing through into the actual interior of the house. They usually get in through a pre-existing breach (which they sometimes make bigger). So unless you've got a big whole in your wall on the inside of your house, you should be fine.
But you should call a pest control company about it. I would ask for a quote and call a few different ones to get a good price. Also look them up on google or yelp or something to make sure they know what they're doing (it's not complicated work, but some people half-ass it).
Note: if you are convinced that it actually is in your room, just close the door, sleep on the couch tonight, and call the next day. There's really not much else you can do unless you're willing to deal with it yourself.0
