|Haunted house or over-active imagination?

Me and my boyfriend recently moved into our own place. It’s a 1 bedroom flat. I think it might be haunted though. It’s always in the bedroom which is at the back of the house. It’s always cold in there.|
The first night was fine. But on the second night I was here on my own (my boyfriend works nights) and when I turned my lights off and got into bed an overwhelming sense of heaviness came into the room. I don’t know how to explain it. I was storing my clothes in a suitcase that night and all of a sudden the zippers on it started jangling. It made such a racket. What other possible explanation does anyone have that could answer this?
The following nights were relatively activity free. There was just an odd bang and rattle here that could have been the guy who lives upstairs.
One evening when my boyfriend was with me, he heard something bang the floor next to the bed four times in a uniform kind of pattern. It was as if it was tapping underneath the carpet. It was so uniform in nature in fact, it was as if someone was under the floorboard and tapping it.
Another night, I was awoken sharply by the bottom of my bed shaking and vibrating. Then it got worse and felt like someone was hitting the mattress. It stopped suddenly and I hid underneath the quilt until my boyfriend came home (he comes home between 3:30am and 4:00am). When he came home I was awake. He got into bed. We’d settled down and were both then alarmed by someone forcibly yanking on the bedroom curtain. We couldn’t see anything but we could hear it.
About ten minutes later my boyfriend woke me up. He was quite alarmed and asked me if I’d just tried to put my arm over him. I was said no and asked him what he was on about. He said he felt someone brush a hand or something similar right over his midriff, on top of the quilt, and it freaked him out.
Nothing else happened for a week or so, until one evening when I was cold in bed and tried to adjust my duvet. I sleep on the right side of the bed and I couldn’t pull the duvet over me because something heavy was on the left side of the bed. I could even feel a slight pressure on the side of my left leg, as if something was resting slightly on it. All of a sudden, something shifted and I could move the duvet. I suppose it could have just been static electricity causing friction between the duvet and bed sheet and it stuck a bit, hence why I couldn’t move it, but it still freaks me out!
We also heard someone tapping on the bedroom window, but when we looked outside there was no one there.
Does this sound like a haunt? Any logical explanation to these goings on? I've been dying to post this somewhere, but no where seemed suitable. Glad I found a place where I can ask questions and stuff :)
