For day 16 I thought I was noticing a pattern but it doesn't seem consistent.

The last number stays the same. The number before the last number is "driven" by whatever that last number was.

Then after I am not sure how its working. Sometimes the 3rd number from the last, is moving by what the second number was and other times its a sum of the previous rows, n - 1 numbers.

You have the right observation. I'd recommend looking at the pattern of the sums leading to it, as well, starting from that last number.
