Milky looking oil and white pieces in coolant overflow

Hi Guys, new to this forum and new to bikes, thanks for any help in advance.
just purchased a 2019 mt07 with 3000kms.

I have two things I need help with:

1. My oil looks milky in the oil glass and thick, and when I dumped some in a pan, it looked cloudy and thick An slightly milky.

2. In my overflow there is white flakes at the bottom quite a lot infact but no oily residue.

My concerns are above, and this is a fairly new bike any help would be greatly appreciated.

Milky looking oil is a sure sign of water in the oil.

I would change the oil and watch it very closely. It could have a leak, usually the head gasket is what lets go.
