Default something clunking in motorcycle exhaust?

1978 gs550,i took the muffler off to weld a hole that was in it, but when i did i noticed that when i tipped it back and forth there was something that rolled then clunk, through the hole i could see it was something that looked like a pipe, i assumed that since it was rotten,it was just a peice of the inside that broke loose,but when i took off the muffler from the right side that didnt have any rust at all , it did the same thing, sliding sound then a clunk,is it actually supposed to be like that? or do i need to replace both of them?

Both those internal pipes should be fixed in place to stop the gases pushing straight through the exaust the pair will need replacing . ------
