That's called milkshake.

You may need a new seal or head gasket, etc..

What's the rest look like?

You will need the seal (as shown in the photo)
O-ring (on the balancer shaft)
and the combo Bearing / Seal on the inside of the cover.

Its easy to nick the seal upon side cover reinstallation. KTM sells a plastic cone protector or use some tape on the balancer shaft.

another alternative is to use a small, fine file and slightly round off the sharp edge of the shaft that cuts the seal.

Would probably need a picture to properly understand the question but...

A o-ring is on the balancer shaft AKA The Water Pump Shaft.

When sourcing the o-ring in the parts book look at the balancer shaft diagram not the water pump diagram. Purchase a few of them as they are not easily sourced from aftermarket suppliers (your local auto parts store).

white stuff

Hello Stealth. You could have seal issues. However, some oils cause that white goo, usually collects at high points like filler necks. Others refuse to do that at all. My truck is running Castrol and gets some goo. Mobil 1 did that also. Kawasaki synthetic will not make any goo, even after slow cold days of attempting trials riding on my Husaberg. Not easy, by the way. Smoothest shifting you ever had, on that oil. Yes, they got a 15-50. L

The part with red ring should there be an o ring here ?

Yes. It usually stays in the side cover and then falls out on the floor somewhere.
