I dont know how to interact with such console? I am expecting to see a
normal text login screen.
Lot of applications write stuff to the console, so the login prompt is often lost from the view. Just hit Enter, and it should show up.

The repeated timestamp you see must be debugging output form some app. If it spams too fast, the usage of the console might be very uncomfortable.

Please help me what should I do in order to access the domU and perform
various operations on it (installing some apps/software)?
Usually, the console of a VM Guest is intended for debugging and recovery tasks, specially on a UNIX inspired system. You would probably find it more comfortable to perform the system administration via a SSH terminal, you even may use it to transport graphic applications to your desktop.
