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.

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.
