    It doesn’t sound like a big problem. How long ago did you change the gearbox oil? I would just change the transmission oil if its been more than 3 years since you last changed it. Most people ignore manual transmission fluids. Please don’t neglect that gearbox. Old oil can have metal shavings in it as well as sludge build up. Just as with motor oil, an oil change is cheap insurance. You need to use Ford synthetic manual transmission fluid - IIRC it's part #XT-M5-QS (check your owner’s manual).
