You should not be worried about engine damage.  What you should do is measure oil out next time as well and, if low, figure out where it's going.  O-rings that seal the spark plug area are known to fail on some KXF's for example.  Not a big deal to lose oil that way, but annoying.  The fix is pretty easy.  In your case, you might just have to replace the o-rings.  Best to post on the bike specific topic to get bike specific answers for why it might be leaking.  No reason to lose sleep about the oil level, though.  You did no harm to the motor.

Should not have damaged anything, I find with my 12 model  i need to top up a bit every ride or 2nd ride. 

 

You have the sight glass, get in the habit of checking it before every ride.
