If you are loosing radiator water/antifreeze and you see 'white' smoke out of your exhaust then it is likely that you are seeing steam: this usually indicates that you have a blown cylinder head gasket or have a cracked ylinder head: both situation will cause overheating of your engine. You can also check this situation by waiting until the engine is COLD, opening the radiator cap, refill with clean radiator fluid/water, restart the engine and see if the water as seen in the radiator is violently bubbling. Another condition before even starting the car again is if you see oil/white-brown staining in the radiator fluid caused by cracked cylinder head or gaskets letting engine oil in the radiator circuit. In any case, it is a critical sitation and you should get it checked and fixed immediately.
Hope it helps and please let me know if I have assessed the correct situation.

oil from the pcv valve going into your intake manifold will cause a gasket to swell. but it should not be to the point where it's noticeable. you should probably replace the intake manifold gasket at this point.
