The one that will accept a hose and should not flow gas unless your float bowl needle is stuck open causing flooding. So the hose only directs flooding fuel overboard away from the motor. Goes overboard.
The hole on top is a carburetor float bowl vent, which is just another symptom of overflow problem.
Does fuel flow from both holes? or just the top one?
Search google or TT for setting a float needle. Great stuff out there. You want the float bowl to fill enough to get to the jets, but stop filling when full, preventing overflow.
Carburetors are like $20-$50 on ebay! check diameter of the holes, alignment and overall demensions, and there will be a good fit out there. 20mm will be more then enough for a 50cc.

Once you have the float bowl off, hold it right side up with your fingers on the float. attach the fuel hose again and push up gently on the float to force the needle to seat. Turn on the fuel and no fuel should flow if your float needle works properly.
Let the float drop slowly and you should get fuel flow. Lift it back up and it should stop again. this is a prperly working float/needle. Make sure the float isn't holding fuel inside itself, this will cause a stuck open needle.
Adjust according to how the carb works best.
You are getting too much fuel to the carb which is overflowing.
Unless it's a two stroke there shouldn't be oil mix.

Fix the float problem, Fuel should not come out of a oil injection port either.
Then just premix if thats the case. Much easier and more trustworthy.
