If you have used too thin of an oil or been a tight arse with your oil change schedule it might be from grinding gears as the gear changes will be horrible with old or the wrong oil.
Before getting into a panic I'd cut the oil filter open and see what's inside, also remove and check the oil mesh tube inside the engine and see what it has caught.
What was in the bottom of your oil drain pan?
The magnet won't catch alloy.
I see foil in the background so I'm assuming you drop the oil while hot?
Do you use a rearstand or your sidestand while changing oil?
"HOPEFULLY" the mesh, filter and plug has the worst of the debris out of circulation.

Use the rear stand to do oil and check the oil level, if you do the oil level on the side stand you will over fill it.
I use foil on the exhaust to stop oil getting on the hot exhaust, oil flows out better, dragging more gunk with it when hot.
The mesh filter is behind pic rel, your bike might not have the sensor in the outer plug.
Unscrew the outer plug and then you'll need a big Allen key to unscrew the mesh tube.
I can't remember if it was 10mm or bigger.
