Most Likely You Are Seeing Condensation. When We Drive Short Drives Around Town, Ect. The Exhaust Pipe Doesn`t Get Hot Enough To Keep Water From Condensing Inside The Exhause Pipes. So When You Start Your Car You Will See This White Steam Comming Out The Tail Pipe. You Will Also See It Until The Exhaust Warms Up. I`m Sure By Your Question This Is What You Are Seeing. Hope This Will Help
