Strange noises and wont stay running

The clunking is probably just the kick back from the motor. You're hearing the compensator assembly doing what it's supposed to do.. Which is saving your crank. The whoosh sound ?? could it have been a backfiring while you were trying to start it? Once you ad stabil to the fuel and it gets in the system it will run terrible until the stabil is completely run out of the system. If you're wearing the battery down trying to start it, it will cause the kick back and backfiring through the carb too. Make sure you have your battery fully charged before trying it again.

Mower backfired a few times and died it wont run now unless you hold the key on at that time all it does is pops and backfires with every revolution

I would check for water in the carb bowl and also the flywheel key maybe sheared allowing the engine to be out of time with the ignition and cause it to backfire and pop.
