Sounds like metal shavings. Very fine.could be from pump or from the rack n pion steering.

Agree with bender, one or the other is bad.

how do you know which one it is? how do i go about checking them? i want to fix the problem before something worse breaks on this car

Does the pump make any noise?

Remember, when you changed out the fluid, even though you put in new fluid, there was a certain amount left in the lines and steering. Probably normal as that would have caused your clean fluid to get grey.
