Just finished washing my bike and realized the oil dipstick was missing. I obviously got water in my case among potentional dirt. I did not notice this until after I started my bike and let it run for a bit before noticing. What should I do now? I know I need to change my oil and filter, but should I wait until I get new dipstick or should I do it immediately? Thank you for your help.

Change the oil and filter immediately before you get a new dipstick. The water MAY (and I say MAY) damage your bearings somewhat (rust).
