Have Any Idea's?

What could cause my truck to blow blueish white smoke when i first start it up. It will blow a decent amount for about 5 to 7 seconds then its pretty hazy. The average temps are around mid thirty's to upper 40's. All fluids have been changed recently.

It is due to unburned fuel when engine is cold. Could also have injector tips wearing out depending on the miles. Not too abnormal. Gets worse when the outside temp. is colder?

The truck has 50,000 miles on it. It does get worse when it is colder out. Thanks for the help I appreciate it.
