Front edge of head gasket is leaking, probably needs to have the two small hex head bolts inside the chain case tightened up. Otherwise, I'd live with it (unless you cannot have oil drips) since replacement requires removing the head.

The M110 is a noisey engine -- mechanical tappets. An adjust will possibly quiet it down, but there is a distinct possibility that it will always make some tappet noise.
