Tire Scratches

So I just got done putting away tools, when I noticed that my tire has some gouges on it.
The bike is about a month old, and has 900miles on it. Should I not be worried, and continue driving? Or get it replaced as soon as possible. I know that with car tires, as long as it doesn't pass a certain depth you're "fine", but I'm not too familiar with Motorcycle Tire Gouges.
Any advice?

The big gouge doesn't look any deeper than the bottom of the tread so I would keep the tyre until it need changing.

How'd it happen? Did you ride over broken glass?

I'm not sure. My driveway is gravel, and the jerks who live further down from me speed down the road so I have to avoid (as best as I can) the holes in the road. Sometimes I hit the edge of the hole with my tire and I slide into the hole. So I can assume that's a good reason why I have this. I rode into work today, and it doesn't look like anything has changed/or affected anything.
