Looks to me like a drain for a future shower or tub. If stuff is backing up it when the plug is out I would suspect a main line clog or partial clog issue.
A plumber or drain cleaning company should be able to trace where the line goes so you can determine how it is connected into your drainage system.

Hello....
If you have another cleanout then you can cap it off permanently. If not then have a plumber extend the pipe to floor level. Put a new removable cap on. seal surrounding area with concrete. The fumes need to be addressed pronto.
Not healthy
