In brief: Extra beats.

Could be normal change in heart rate with change in position when lying in bed, but if its persistent and you feel it on other occasions, it could be due to extra beats or a some sort of arrhythmia such as atrial fibrillation.
Check with your doctor for evaluation and possibly a holter monitor and/or event monitor to assess your cardiac rhythm during these episodes.
