Wondering what this is under only one timing belt and not the other.

There are several lines and the numbers 1 2 3

Those are the marks used to identify the correct crankshaft bearings.

How do you read the marks? What does the paint mean? Just wondering how to tell what kind/size I have.

You also have to have the crankshaft out. There are #s on it and you match them with the mark on the block to get the correct bearings. The paint doesn't mean anything.
