The ejector looks a little rough on the edge, and I'm used to seeing more of a hook shape on the leading edge.

Try some Very light de-buring on the ejector, and that piston looked a little dirty but nothing that should be causing malfunctions. Try to clean that up a little.
I feel like your not getting enough air to cycle properly

What would be best to debur it with? A fine file or emory cloth? I have no experience with anykind of gun smithing. Also the piston is clean. That is pitting in the metal. There is also a tiny bit on the sides of the piston but it doesnt go all the way through any of the rings. I forgot to get any softer wire at work today to see if the gas port was clear but should I be able to see some light shine through it into the barrel?

I would start with a very fine sand paper, and when I say just touch it to it I mean like 2-3 quick brushes and then some emry. And yes if you shine light in the gas port u should see something in the barrel.

I'm with the "check the gas port crowd" - maybe not enough oomph to properly cycle? Clean that port.

And try a different mag just to be sure - I have a 40rd Romy mag that will only work perfectly in one of 4 AKs.

Be sure you contact IO immediately - they may frown on you doing WECSOG work on the guts when they should be working over your AK under warranty.

Im with NFAFAN... Send it in to them. You might have to pay a bit of cash to ship it but better than having to buy replacement parts if something gets ruined or by playing the guess and check repair protocol...
