Welcome to FIXYA
There in only 1 thing i can think of where the white smoke is from it could be anitfreeze if so it would mean a cracked head or a bad head gasket if it gets worse then you have a big problem but if you check the water level and it looks fine then you should be ok for a while
if it was black smoke or a real dark gray then it would be oil
i hope this helps you out have a good day

The black smoke is not a problem, it just means that there is a rich gas mixture in the motor to start the car from cold.
This is normal with a cold engine...
Sometimes there is a seeping of oil from old rocker cover gaskets.
If the oil is not running out in a trickle. Don't worry about it...
Wipe the oil away with a rag and see if it comes back soon.
Check the oil level on the dipstick regularly and you should not have any trouble...
