have a pic need some advise need to tie in for basement bathroom

[ATTACH=CONFIG]27528[/ATTACH] so I have these two pipes here the one on the left has a cleanout on the top of it and the front of it has nothing on it almost looks like it was cut about an inch and a half right in front of the hub and the pipe on the right painted gray is bigger in diameter which has a y that has a clean out on top of the y which branches out to the side of the house to a metal grate cover thinking at one time was used to drain a gutter or maybe just for fresh air.....so my question is what was the drain pipe on the left used for and why would it be just cut off like that and left alone and could I tie into that pipe with drain lines for a bathroom or should I tie into the bigger pipe on the right which I think is the main drain the goes out to the street because I can hear water go threw it when water is used in the house (now when I purchased this house years ago it was advertised as a 1 and a half bath home )could that be what the pipe on the left was at some point any advise and or direction would be helpful thanks

You need to take a better pic...

If one goes to a grate out the side then it sounds like a house trap..

Could the drain pipe on the right be the storm drain system because it has a wye with a cleanout directly on top and it branches to the outside of the basement wall to the gutter?
