Rx8 blue smoke

Blue smoke is caused by burning oil, if it only puffs for a minute on initial start up I wouldn't worry. It is really common for newer fuel injected engines to blow a small amount off blue smoke on cold startup. Plus rx8 use oil while the engine is on, if you are new to rotary engines then a little bit of history on this engine is they do burn much more oil than a typical piston combustion engine, that is due to the lubrication system, it actually uses oil in the entire rotary housing so the rotors dont get too hot. you are supposed to check/add oil every 2 gas fill ups. you would think the would come up with a better system, but thats the downside to a rotary. they are mean engines though. they are a 1.3L but, your oil seals might be going or your ignition coils or spark plugs may be going bad.

Had to start then blue smoke on cold engine start

Blue smoke usually means that oil of some sort has entered the combustion chamber. While that COULD be the CAUSE of a hard start (assuming you mean 'hard' not 'had' start) it may be just a symptom or result of the actual cause. Things that might be important to diagnose would be mileage, engine, any history of overheating, old fuel, moisture content in fuel, etc.

A blue warning light keeps coming on on mitsubushi colt 58 reg, it is below the red warning light squiggly lines with thermometer, the blue warning light is exactly the same just blue, what does this mean.

It is a low coolant temperature light. IT is normal for the light to come on when starting the engine from cold but should go out after a couple of miles, if not then consult a dealer.

An icon came up and i dont know what it means

That is your coolant light. When the coolant is cold (car is cold) it is blue for a moment then goes out.
When the coolant is too hot, it is red.
When it flashes, you are low on coolant. Check the coolant tank level (it is the big ball shaped reservoir) and make sure you are within the operating level (about half way up, there are marks indicating proper level)

Temperture icon flashes

if the light is blue it just means the car is not at operating temperature yet. let the car warm up before driving. if the light is red and only stays on for seconds check the coolant level. could possibly be a bad level sensor also if the light is red
