I just got a new yz450 and got just did my first oil change. When I drained the oil it was kind of milky looking. I used to have a crf250r and never saw oil like this come out when I changed the oil.
I checked the coolant and it was not low at all, and when I rode it I didn't go through any puddles.
I was wondering if this is normal or should I take it into a shop, the bike is still under the 30 day warranty.

Take it to the shop under warranty. Its probably coolant leak from the head. Sounds like its new and so it may need a new head gasket. Don't let then just torque down the head bolts, demand a new head gasket.
