I just wanted to change my oil

Ever since the first service on this motor I could only get one of the two oil drain plugs to come out. We have another truck with the same motor same problem normally you have to use a long wrench to get the plug out and even though it's cleaned thoroughly these plugs seize up. But today a little bit more than the plug came out. I tried looking around online and I can't find anything about this. What do I do aside from the obvious of putting it back in? I'm worried of this popping out going down the road

Ah, the dreaded plastic oil pan issues. Your post isn't in the correct forum, but I can tell you that you'll most likely have to replace the oil pan. The bolt seized to the sleeve, and once that sleeve works it's way loose, it won't stay in there.

You may get lucky and get creative on reseating that sleeve, and I'm not sure if there's any sort of repair kit for that.
