From what is shown, it looks like normal wear patterns to me. If the wear on the lifters looks circular and NOT a line across the face, then the lifters are rotating and all should be OK.

The crud in the water passages could be from the water pump being over lubricated (is it grease?) or from something being left in the block, but I have never seen a reaction between potable tap water and antifreeze look like that!
