Clogged? not good! First check the timing chain, sometimes if not maintained they will eat up the guides or sprockets.

Do you have any idea how often the previous owner changed the filter? Should be done AT LEAST every second oil change.

What you may want to do is to do a complete oil change with a new filter and run it for a couple of days. Then change it again and see what it looks like after a more normal interval.
