Metal in transmission pan?

Alright so I finally got around to dropping my trans pan, well everything was good until I looked in the pan and saw some metal shavings and what looked like metal clumps and they are washing away as the oil passes over it. Well I touched the magnet and it was COVERED with this metal shaving sludge! Idk if this is normal or what I just need to know what I should do. Any input is helpful!!!!

The magnets are there to pick up metal shavings, there will always be some metal. So clean the pan and the magnets before you replace it and you'll be good to go. As long as there's no big chunks of metal you should be fine.

This was my first time taking a transmission pan off so I didn't know how much shavings would be acceptable. Thanks forthe help
