I also had this a few weeks ago. Next thing which happened was a complete clog due to some black piece (most probably ABS wear from the feeder) blocking the nozzle.

I recommend to clean the nozzle once or twice with the atomic method. It worked in my case.

    Yeah, I've had the exact same thing happen to me. It definitely looks like a small clog in the nozzle, but could be something else like printing too cold and fast which is causing the filament to grind at the motor interface. To clean the clog I would first go to "Move Material" after increasing the printing temp significantly; try ABS temps. While the nozzle is heating up start trying to extrude filament, if you keep getting motor skipping even at high nozzle temps then try the atomic method. If both of those methods fail it's probably a print setting issue; in which case post the settings and filament type you are using.
