Yes, I'm certain it's NOT a stress-related injury but comes from something heavy falling on the pan.

The ugly wood is the original. The part of it at the door frame (and wall the door is on) is 1/8 lower than the edge that meets the new wood on the joist.

Correct, I'm fine without level as long as it doesn't affect the tile.
