Metal Shavings in Oil?

Probably a stupid question... Should I be concern about having some metal shaving in the oil? When my dad did the second oil change on the CX-5, he said he noticed some metal shavings from the oil. The car currently have 13xxx miles on it and this was the 2nd oil change, using Mazda Oil + Filter both times.

was 175ps Mazda CX-5 Auto AWD Sport Nav, now 190ps DSG Tiguan 4M
Years ago when I changed oil every 3K miles some metal filings, very fine, would be found on the magnetic sump plug.
I wouldn't be concerned myself.

He told me after wiping the oil change pan/dumping the oil into the recycle container... So didn't have a chance to get a picture.

Next oil change send a sample to Blackstone. They'll be able to tell you exactly how much metal is in the oil and how that matches up with universal averages for that motor (in other words-- is there potentially a problem).
