Default HRV Issue?

Hi all,

I'm trying to figure out if I have an HRV issue. I've been in my home for about 6 years and the filters are never really dirty (except for a small dusting).

I had a closer look inside my HRV unit and I noticed that there are two "ducts" (forgive me if I use the wrong terminology). I would assume that one is for the air that comes inside the house while the other would be one for the air that comes out of the house.

One of these 'ducts' seems blocked. I took a picture of it. Is this normal?

Anyways, I may be making something out of nothing. It just seems odd that the HRV is never dirty...no bugs or anything.
