White smoke is usually coolant. Not good.

Do a sniff test. White is usually coolant, which usually leads to a head gasket issue. Is it coming from both sides or just one? Also how many miles on your car? What year?

Get if fixed as soon as you can. Its not good for your motor to be burning that coolant. Keep an eye on your antifreeze level as well.
