Valve clearance need adjusting a fraction. not dangerous, better to be a tad loose than too tight and have valves partially open.

It's an easy job and will take 15 minutes with basic tools and a feeler gauge.

If your not already, try using a genuine Nissan oil filter next time you get your oil changed. Most aftermarket filters allow the oil to drain back so when you start up cold the filter is in essence dry and not primed most likely causing the noise your experiencing. This would be the first thing I would reccommend checking.

this is either a loose belt, or low power steering fluid. Remember that Honda uses a diffrent power steering fluid from everyone else. Make sure it is a Honda compatable fluid, or you will get leaks.

you need to give us more info about your car, based on your info i would say one of your valve lifters is bleeding off pressure when the engine is off, you can try putting 1/2 qt. of automatic transmission fluid in your engine oil, atf is a good cleaning agent and may clean your lifters up. i have done it many times
