If your talking about white smoke at exhaust tailpipe , sounds normal until engine reaches working temp and condensation dried up , especially in cold /damp weather .If not that , unburnt fuel .

If worried you should get a block test check carried out to eliminate head / head gasket . That's if the smoke is steam and any sign of coolant level dropping .

Could also try bleeding cooling system in case of air lock which can be another sign of head gasket .
