U need to go to ur nearest garage mechanic to check that out! Open your OiL CAP and look at the underside, if there is a whitish substance, it means ur coolant have mixed w/ ur engine oil and you got a BUSTED CYLINDER HEAD GASKET! Hope u haven't got any engine overheating! Replacing the gasket by ur mechanic will surely solve ur problem! Taah!

White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
