It may dissipate only because it is cooking off faster after warmup.
You have a hose or radiator leak; check your coolant level often until you have it serviced.
I wouldn't use the stuff but there are several 'stopleak' products in auto parts stores.
Don't let it hang too long; if you run low on coolant, you are risking overheating and possibly a blown head gasket which you may already have anyhow.
The coolant leak can come from hoses, the radiator and the head gasket failed near a cooling channel.
Also check your oil and if it looks like Jergens (hand lotion), you already have a blown gasket; that comes from oil and water mixed together and makes a poor lubricant.

White smoke tells me that you have entered the land of "blown head gasket" Is temp normal and coolant full? If not, you are definitely there. Job is not difficult for a reasonably experienced tech, if you're not, either get a manual and follow instructions very carefully, or, bring it to a reputable shop. Parts are under 300... Don't forget to replace cylinder head bolts (they might look OK but are not to be re-used.)

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.

Yes, the best way to determine if you've blown a head gasket, it to use the diagnos # 4 gas analyser or smog test analyser- (the tube that goes up the tail pipe), place the wand near the radiator. if the wand reads finds CO in the cooling system ,100% blown head gasket
