I'm really sorry to be the one to tell you this, but the blue smoke is from the engine burning oil. This almost certainly is from bad piston rings. The engine needs to be replaced or rebuilt, because this problem will get steadily worse until the engine dies completely. You should have had the engine checked over before you got it.

Water coming out the tailpipe means there is water in the exhaust. This is not uncommon when the engine is cold and the exhaust is condensing. That situation should stop when the engine warms up. If the exhaust continues to have water in it after the engine is warmed up it could possibly indicate a leaky head gasket or cracked cylinder head.

The white smoke indicates the burning of oil. A number of issues could be causing this, especially on an older engine.
