I’ve noticed a small rock got embedded in the belt. Is this common? Manual states that if its not on the edge, it should be fine. I pulled the rock out.

Anyone had this happen and been riding on that belt without issues?

The bike/belt has 6.5k miles on it.

Well, obviously it will be a weak spot but as long as you don't beat on the bike it will work. I'd be replacing it down the road. Mostly because at some point you can't resist the urge to feed it great gobs of throttle.

I’d probably do it sooner than later. I actually did break a belt once while in the freeway, shortly after having the same thing happen. I’d order one and replace it at your earliest convenience, but would ride it until then.
