Looks fine, the level should drop as you start the bike and the oil circulates around the engine.
Level looks fine to me.

is it white, blue or black smoke?

from Memory blue/gray smoke suggests oil leak
Black smoke suggests burning too much fuel
White/gray suggests head gasket

I just drained a little bit of oil just to be sure. The smoke is white/ grey ish and smells really bad. There is a carbon cover on the oil gasket but behind that cover i can see black oil and thats where the smoke is coming too
Hmm, don't like to scare people with it but you should start to try and rule out head gasket. Take the rad cap off, make sure the bike is cold before you do. You're looking for oil in the water, you'd spot it by there being a think creamy residue in there or by smell or by the water being discoloured.

Next you could buy a kit off of either ebay or amazon, Combustion Leak Tester Kit Head Gasket CO2, 30ml Fluid 15 tests, Petrol/Diesel | eBay. Cheap and easy way to test.

You could also drain the oil, again looking for that creamy residue.
