Hi and yes. Any yellow flame is sooting. Also, I notice that the main burner orifice, or tube may be leaking, creating yellow flame under the burner. If those are damaged, a replacement is called for.

You might be able to undo the pilot connection, wrap it with two turns of yellow teflon and reassemble. That can give you a gas tight connection without too much force.

Yours, Larry
