If the sputter dissipates when the engine gets warm then a portion of the exhaust manifold is not tight against the engine block and is letting exhaust gas escape until the metal heats up and expands, if no then you might have a break in the exhaust gasket. Nothing that will harm the car or keep you from passing a smog test but annoying for sure. In my case the last bolt on the end of the manifold broke for some reason and caused the same sputter, I ened up removing the bolt and replacing it and the sputter went away. Good luck
