A lot of ignition issues can change as the engine heats. I would still replace that bad plug - you have a spark leakage issue there. The contamination may be getting more conductive as the plug...

Belt idler shock? These usually rattle with time from a worn out mounting bushing. If it is loose when you push against it, this is a likely source of such a noise.
