I found it in my room last night and I'm terrified.

Definitely a type of cockroach. If I had to guess, I'd say oriental cockroach. (If you live in northwest/midwest/souther US, these are more common)
If it is an oriental roach, on the bright side it can't fly. Downside is that it likes damp places so it may have come in through the sewer system. In any case, it also may have come in through under doors, basement windows, or garages... So one roach doesn't necessarily mean anything...
But when you start seeing several, that's a problem. That's when you contact pest control and make them reevaluate your home.1
