Mk6 golf 1.6 tdi dsg rattling issue

A problem has recently starting ocurring on my car.

On a cold start once engine started for about 30-40 seconds I get a rather large rattling sound coming from what sounds like right hand side of bonnet drivers side. This only lasts around 30 seconds and disappears then or straight away as soon as I start driving. This has only started happening recently I've done a few Google searches and most seem to come back with head gasket or timing belt?

I'm at 97k with my service due now but my manual states my timing belt doesn't need changing until 120k?

My other issue is I am having very heavy coolant drain. I top up and then within a week I'm way below minimum level like waaay below. But I get no warning on dashboard or anything. I have no idea what to check for but my oil filler cap by engine looks damp and the surrounding engine area looks a little damp too?

Any help to figure out what could be the issue guys?
I have recorded a video of the rattling but no idea how to upload sorry.

Any help appreciated thanks
