OK, but just what is your question exactly?

There is probably a miscommunication
(terminology) issue here.

The *compilation* buffer is what pops up when
you compile code in Emacs. You don't want to
automatically close this, especially not when
it reports warnings.

Here is some work on the debugger to make it
less noisy. You can fine tune it to not report
certain very harmless "errors". But just so not
have you confused this is an all-Emacs thing
that does not apply only to when Emacs starts!

Also, this is a matter of suppressing certain
errors which you don't consider errors.
It isn't suppressing ALL errors which isn't
a sound attitude.

It is a better attitude to find out what
warnings you get and solve them one by one.
This makes you a better programmer with
a better system.

Here is some more init stuff that might help
you or give you some ideas what to do:

    ;; no fanfare / init
    (setq inhibit-startup-screen t)
    (setq inhibit-startup-echo-area-message "incal")

    ;; scratch buffer
    (setq initial-scratch-message nil)
    (kill-buffer "*scratch*")

For `inhibit-startup-echo-area-message', use
your username, I think what is in
`user-login-name'. But you should spell it out.
