Raw gas smell may be the culprit of starting noise. Leaky injector(s) could be causing some fuel to enter chambers as you shut off engine, washing oil off cylinder walls and diluting oil. Check fuel pressure key on/engine off and test for gas in the oil.
a certain amount of gasoline will get into the oil over time, and will probably smell worse if you don't service it at regular intervals, give it a service and assuming it isn't leaking oil it should be ok unless the bores and rings are worn
bad egr valve, pcv valve, if the level of your oil isnt rising its probably just the oil washing the cylinder walls during the piston strokes. It could be that your rings are wearing but you should get blue smoke. Try changing your oil and see if the smell returns quickly or not.
Check to see if gas is getting into the oil which would raise the level. This can happen from flooding, i.e. a leaky injector dumping too much gas or possibly gas blowby past the piston rings and ending up in crankcase. If gas is in the oil most likely an injector is bad. Smell the oil and check to see if it smells like gas and or check viscosity of oil.. thin oil
If you had to add oil, more then likely there an oil leak could be a gasket or oil seal, where ever the leak is at it's falling on the exhaust manifold and burning the oil, that's what you smell. Have it check cause low oil will damage you engine.
The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.
Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
