They are your HLAs. Pretty normal on our cars. Just make sure you have enough oil in it. They tend to get super loud when you're running low.

Sounds to me like the coolant mixed with the oil and it got so bad that you spun a rod bearing. I would drop your oil pan, pull the rod caps off and inspect your bearings before you throw a rod through your block.
