Exclamation 2007 V6 Mustang Engine Trouble

I woke up today and went downstairs to my Mustang and started it only to be faced with this sound (within the youtube link), I've been told it could be a few things but there is no real explanation and I would enjoy some other feedback. I got my oil changed about a month ago, there is 207,000 miles on the car, and the last oil change was not even 1,000 miles ago. There is no metal shavings in the oil when checked whatsoever, and the oil level is completely fine. What could the problem possibly be?

Can you determine where the noise is coming from? Sounds like its coming from under the valve covers. Difficult to diagnose not being there. Sounds like you need to get it to a shop that you trust for a diagnosis.

2006 GT, Strut Tower Brace, Gas Hood Struts, FR Intake Plenum cover, Metal Fuse Box cover, Moroso brake reservoir cover, Rear shock tower brace, Front Bumper Lip Spoiler, JVC DVD Head unit w/ back-up camera, satellite Radio and USB input, 2 - 12" sub-woofers, 4 - 6"x8" speakers, 2 - 6.5" speakers to replace the door subs, 3 amplifiers, LED lights under the hood and in the trunk, chrome e-handle on parking brake handle, chrome cup holder trim, and trunk lid cover with running pony emblem.

Its hard to tell because to me it sounds like the fan blade hitting something.

Update: Thinking the spark plugs may need changed, we took the spark plugs out and checked them, one had gasoline on it. We turned the car on and there was a white smoke coming from the engine (not dark at all but it was a light white, more than normal,) and it smelled like gas and oil burning so we turned the car off. Checked the oil after checking it the previous night after starting the car there was a white milky substance in the oil. What could this be, as well as the sound?

White milky is coolant mixing with the oil. Now you have to find out how the two are coming together.
