Im with Mountain... I would pull it off and inspect under it... By the picture, I think something inside chewed on this spot. And if you havent done so, while you take this valve cover off... be a good time to replace the rear camshaft seal bracket. Dont buy a rebuild kit as the camshaft seal is GLUED in.... Part # 9L8Z-6B293-A is the replacement part. Just had to do my 2011.

I then ran across this video. Is there any possible way that one of these bolt heads broke off and danced around the timing chain until it finally shot out? After seeing this video, and the hole in your cover, id def be pulling and inspecting.
