Could it be the bushings, clutch?

just replaced head gasket and water pump

How do I find out if it's a non interference engine? can anyone confirm what the likely damage would be to my car. And how much it will cost to repair if it's just a cam belt without engine damage

Can I do it myself? I have 275,000 kms. showing. Is it worth fixing or should I just keep replacing oil as needed? Will the engine eventually fail? I have always done regular oil changes at 5000 km.
