Can this be the cold air intake, or the filters inside the furnace?

Cleaned our air filter yesterday. It's supposed to be cleaned every 4-6 weeks and we bought it in December so a bit late, but doesn't seem to be too dirty.

Replaced the air filter here at my house. Before, comparison after.  Metal mesh side facing the fan to prevent the filter from being sucked into it!
