Sounds like fleas. I'd worry that guinea pigs might be too sensitive to use regular cat or dog flea products. You'll have to take it to the vet as soon as you can.

Every flea I've seen has been black and appeared roundish, not long.

Unfortunately, doing anything without going to the vet, you may make your guinea pig's problems worse. Most of them will work out payment plans if you can't afford it, and there is also Care Credit. A lot of people who thought they would never get approval got Care Credit, with no interest for awhile, when I worked at the vet.
