oil and piston

oil and piston
The piston in the engine is going to melt. Pictured
this is the piston at the rear of the engine
the piston is made of aluminum.
These were in the engine when I bought it
or is this normal cast iron?
whether this is due to too little oil?
what is the clearance between the piston and the cylinder?
I like to hear your opinion

friendly thanks in advance  Tom Hoek
