I agree with Joachim. It's likely oil from the exhaust cam cover dripping on the headers. It's easy to see with a good flashlight.
Your low compression in #3 is probably worn or burned exhaust valves.
Check the blow-by. lots of pressure inside the block means worn piston rings.
How many miles on this engine?
