It really depends on your parents. If they are ok with it and it's not causing major stress on you or them, I would stay with them until you get your financials in order. The move from military life to civilian life is pretty stressful in and of itself. Worrying about bills and jobs and debt just adds to this. If you have a place to stay, and can put money towards reducing your monthly expenses, I would follow haikuginger's advice. At the very least, try and stay with your parents until you have a job lined up and you can figure out how much income you can expect. Plus the extra income might make it easier to overcome a bad CR when applying for somewhere to rent.
I know when I first moved from the military, it was a Godsend that I was able to stay with my mom until I found a good job. Made everything easier in the long run.
P.S. (edit) Thank you for your service!
