Tiny metal shavings/flakes in coolant

Hey guys in the middle of doing a coolant flush and noticed some metal shavings/flakes mixed in there. could this be a faulty water pump? Or is there any possibility this is normal?

Here are a few details on the bike:
1. 2005 CBR600RR w/ 5990 miles
2. I dont know the service history so when i bought it 1 month ago i changed oil/filter. Now doing coolant flush.
3. PO dropped bike at low speed.

Thanks for any input!

Alex

Are you sure they're metal. Some deposits in the coolant is common.

Im not positive they are metal, that is good to hear though. I thought that was a bit early for a water pump to go out. I appreciate the response.
