I don't know if I'm paranoid or not but I was looking at my water in my betta tsnk and usually if I stir it up it settles (after a water change which I did around 5 hours ago) but there are still small white particles floating all over the place hours later...are these bugs or something by any chance?

They're basically microscopic I don't think my camera will capture them

There were much more when I looked before I made this post now I only see a few, not sure if they move on their own or not but they are small. Smaller than a grain of salt and almost like a line shape not round.

I just watched them really closely for a second and I'm pretty sure they are swimming, what can I do I'm very worried are they going to over run my tank and can they hurt my fish?

Sounds like detritous worms they are harmless but if you have a lot its a sign your substrate has too much organic waste
