2019 Ninja 650 weird smell

I've noticed a weird burning smell (and overheating once, haven't tested since the one drive) after I cleaned and lubed my chain and washed the bike. I let the bike dry completely and only rode the next day. I was something about the smell possibly being from chain lube getting on the bike, but I'm very concerned. Anyone else experience this? Advice on what I should do? Thank you guys

edit: I turned her on and let her run a couple times and the smell seems to be coming from the front part of the engine, not really the back where the chain is

note: I topped off the oil recently and I just looked at it and the oil is a bit dirty, could that be it? Should I change the oil? it isnt due for another 3k miles
Am glad I joined
