What is this bug? It keeps biting me!?

It’s about 5- 7mm. I keep finding them around the house, sometimes crawling on the floor, on the walls, base boards. Is it a gnat or black fly? It may be leaving some gnarly bites on me as well! the bites are rather oval shaped, no puncture wounds, one of them blistered with clear fluid, they're all red in colour. About 1-2 cm diameter bites


Forgot to mention, it has wings!

    Those are parasitic thrips and yes, they can cause bites that itch like mad and last for days.

    Sounds like bedbugs, but I have not ever seen one.
