Has the filter been replaced recently?
Is the filter tight?

I assume the oil level is fine?
No, you haven't ruined anything :-)
The gasket surface was probably not cleaned before installing the new filter. I wouldn't worry about it until the next oil change.

the oil level is fine
so even if it loses a little oil beside the oil filter it is safe to ride it ? it will not harm the engine ?

i think the biggest issue is oil getting on the rear tire if you have a leak,I would think as blade says there might be a sealing issue.with the price of a filter being quite cheap compared to having an off moment i would try another filter.or at least remove the old one and clean and inspect the rubber gasket and the surface it seals to.

You will only loose what's in the filter as the sump is lower than the filter
