Strange brown thing amidst gravel!

Hi everyone!
I've just got my 1st tank and currently cycling it but just today I noticed some strange brown insect like thing sticking out of the gravel. It's sort of split in 2 towards the bottom and it isn't moving. I'll attach a picture (zoomed in so blurry) below. I hope it's just random gravel residue! Don't want it to be a worm (scared of them)! I only have artificial plants in the aquarium so I thought I was safe :-(

hello and warm welcome.:-D
if you are terribly worried you could always remove it,perhaps with tweezers
if you don't want to actually touch it.

Just take it out, it probably isn't serious. Maybe just a bug that flew into the water, sunk to the bottom and died.
