Car not starting - oil level?

Car not starting - oil level? - General Mechanical Advice

Hi guys, any help would be appreciated

So my girlfriends 1997 1.4 litre VW Polo won’t start, though there isn’t an engine warning light lit up at all. Sometimes the car would randomly cut out when driving, but now it won’t start, or will start for a few seconds then die after about 10 seconds. Could this be a possible fuel pump issue or something? All fluid levels on the car are absolutely fine APART from the oil level which is on the minimum level, so when I get time later I’m going to top it up. This is what it looks like under neath the oil cap, is this right or does it need attention?

Thank you in advance for your time!
