Exclamation Passat 2001 1.8T Significant Oil Consumption

I have a 2001 Passat SW, 1.8T. I change the oil every 5000 miles and I don't check the oil level between these changes. Last time, I run 6000 miles and was about to go the service but the oil pressure light came on before. Rapidly, I added a 1 lt of oil and run few miles. The oil pressure light came on again, rapidly I lost the power and got the car towed to the service. They changed the oil pump ($800). Now, the car is running ok but there is a funny sound coming from the engine, like a whistle, when the RPM increases during the acceleration. In addition to that, the oil consumption has considerably increased. I can observe the decreasing level with the oil dipstick almost every week.

Any thoughts? Is the sound serious problem? or did I burn the engine?
