White smoke is water.

One of the many by-products of internal compression is water vapor. It's like breathing, when it's cold out you can see your breath, and when it's warm out you can't. The water vapor in the exhaust (from car or your face) cools rapidly in cold air and you can see it condensing.

Absolutely normal.

Yeah, That should be okay. When it doesn't go away when warm or smells like antifreeze, there's a problem. Don't worry about white smoke when its cold as long as it goes away when hot. All is cool.
