did you check the valve clearance recently because sometimes dirt gets stuck on the head cover gasket, resulting in an oil leak

It is going to be really hard to help you without having more info... Try cleaning your engine and then ride around for a bit to see if you can isolate where the oil leak is coming from. Just don't go heavy on the gas; don't want to burn anything up due to lack of oil.

Make sure you clean your strainers, Mine had alot of metal chips when doing my first oil change. My 2013 has like 1.5 hours on it.

It's in the book that comes with the bike, under the maintenance section. The second strainer is behind the magneto side cover, the 1st strainer is under the shift lever behind that 12mm plug.

It's usually a "check" them thing but when the engine is new it's best to check them maybe first 3 oil changes, at least the 1st strainer. Also i would suggest change your oil every hour for the first 2-3 hours.
