Sleep paralysis?

Last night I was having trouble falling asleep. I remember putting my phone down on my side table and then see something light up. I don't know if it was my phone(that is what I though) but I felt I saw a white figure next to me and I was laying down on my back. But I close my eyes and couldn't make it what it was and I didn't want to see it either. Then I felt like if something was trying to smother me with my blanket and was trying to get it off of me. But I really couldn't move. I remember moving my head to the other side and felt that I was trying to be smothered again so I took the blanket off my face and started trying to reprimand but I felt like I couldn't hear myself say it but only in my head. I felt I was at it for a couple of minutes and I turned around and faced the wall. I started praying to make me feel better and I eventually did but I was still in shock from what had happened that I couldn't move. It took me a while to fall asleep. It was so scary I don't know if it was real or if it was a dream. Or imagined it.
