oil query

Hey all, have just emptied the oil out of the ole girl, seems I had nearly 2.5 litres of oil in there! just a little bit more than required I think.

Mate of mine suggested to smell it and if it smells like fuel then there is something happening there but he could not exactly explain it, something about piston, rings, fuel getting thru?
What to do? she has only 17000k's and i had changed the oil and filter (around 2100ml went in) before the last big ride which covered nearly 6000k's. no metal on the magnet or in the oil pan. the filter was a bit blackish but not too bad.
Thanks for any advice!
