Spin on filter Help Pleaseeeee

I bought a used 08 lmm and was just changing the spin on filter and it has no magnet so im guessing last service someone tossed it. I will have to order one but am I ok to drive safely without the magnet? This is my 1st diesel and first spin off change. Pisses me off its not there.

About half a cup. I wouldn't even check it till the next spin on is installed.
