This is gonna hurt!

So yesterday I look at the ground under my truck in sig and see a huge puddle of coolant. So I pop the hood and take a peak, my coolant filter was loose, then I look at the degas bottle and I see one small dribble of puking! I have never once seen white smoke on start up and now I fired it up today an just got a small white puff and no more. And the truck is running great, I'm taking the tune off just for safe measures. My deltas are around 8 and I'm 300 miles from home! I plan on doing a flush and cooler a BPD erg cooler when I get back! What should I do???

So It did it again this morning, but it didn't smell sweet like coolant, it smelt like raw fuel. I also scanned for codes and I pulled a P0671 glow plug code. But the coolant puke is still worrying me. Could the smoke be caused by temps? I've been living in MO where it's been 95-105 consistently for the past couple months then I come home and she's starting in 55-60 degree temps. Just food for thought. Thanks
