Take a deep breath... probably nothing that bad.

Oil being cloudy, it's probably just the assembly lube you used.

While the valve cover is off Definitely take the belt off and rotate the engine by hand a few revolutions to make sure all is good. I'd do it with the plugs out and then again with the plugs in. Check to make sure the timing chain is tight.

Make sure something didn't fall into the engine bay and is rattling between the engine and the body. Check the exhaust, shake the muffler by hand, etc.

If it's an auto make sure the torque converter bolts are tight and the sheet metal inspection cover is not hitting anything.

Once everything gets the all clear I'd pull the plugs and repeat the oil prime procedure.
