Probably needs readjusted. Autozone has a tool to help readjust it and Dan has an excellent writeup on how to do it....

Yes, metal shavings is a sign that the clutch is out of adjustment. Eventually, the noise will go away, and by that time, the clutch may not be good enough to work properly when you do get the system recharged. You can continue to drive the car with no problem besides the noise.
