Can i determine if the restart was initiated by user or the system rebooted it by itself? how to determine what cause the system reboot?

Unless I am missing something here, this looks like rsyslog was
restarted not the system rebooting. You would have a all kinds of
messages as the system booted if it were a system reboot.

Did someone do a system update? The date looks a bit late for when
rsyslogd was updates, but you can check /var/log/yum to see if
rsyslogd was updated then. The other possibility is that the config
file for rsyslogd was updated, requiring a reload or restart.
