Default Strange stains and filter looks dirty

For the past few days, I am noticing that carpet became dirty near heating vents / registers. HVAC filter is so dirty and black soot is formed on the filter. I am concerned of what could be the possible issue. I moved into new home in May 2017. any ideas / suggestions to take necessary action.

PS: Images are not actual but they looks exactly same in my home
