White smoke is usually an indication of an internal coolant leak.....BUT..... if its just within the first 5 to 10 minutes after start up, what your seeing is condensation in the exhaust.

Ernest,

Just keep an eye on your oil/coolant levels for a while to make sure. If you don't see either levels going down, or a oily residue on top of your coolant in the rad (before starting), or milky white traces on your dipstick when checking the level (before start up or at any time), then your good to go.

Its always good to ask if your not sure.....cause your better safe than sorry.
