Two questions about Straus cream-top milk

I have two questions about Strauss cream top milk in the glass jar.

First, what exactly does one do with the cream on top? I wonder, is the milk underneath still considered whole milk, even though the cream isn't homogenized into it like other milks? Or is it more akin to skim?

Second, this stuff goes sour very quickly on me. I'm finding that it sours a few days prior to the expiration date, or about 4 days after I buy it. Is that normal?
