2002 SE 2.0 SPI Think I am seeing alot of this problem

So, I was driving almost all day today. Stop to take a leak, and get back in my car to hear this HORRIFIC metal on metal noise coming from the engine while trying to start. The damn thing seemed like it actually fired off a couple rpm's while it was doing that too. Wondering if these pics of my plugs are a common sign of dropping my #4 cylinder. Btw, funny how it's less than 100mi after passing 180k.

Thank you in advance for any and all advice.
