Random stalling while cold

Hi everyone. I have a 2012 Touareg V6 sport with 69k miles on the clock. I've been hearing a slight lifter noise for a while that increases with rpm. Dealer said it was normal so I started ignoring it and haven't had any issues in 15k miles. About 2 weeks ago in the morning I started the treg up, started driving and stopped to wait for my gate to open. While I was stopped the engine randomly died. No warnings or anything. I started it right back up and it ran like normal. No signs of anything wrong. A week later it happened again. This time I noticed it was about to die but I gave it some throttle and it recovered. Again no issues at all ever since. The car runs beautifully. I opened the hood today to change the engine air filter and clean the MAF hoping it could be the culprit. While I was poking around in the engine bay, I notice the bottom of the engine block was stained by motor oil. Not a lot but just enough to put a coat of oil over the engine block. I have had no issues with oil spots on my garage floor and my oil level remains high for 10k miles. ANy ideas on what could be causing the stalling? Should I be worried about the oil? And the lifter noise? Any help with experienced members would be greatly appreciated. Attached is a picture of the oil on the block.
