Sounds like the idle is just going up to help it warm up faster. My truck does it all the time when its cold.

This is completely normal ops. It will idle down if you hit the brake peddle too. I have an 1100 high idle on my chip so I can selelct high idle for warm ups and idle air conditioning performance.

There is actually a valve that closes in the exaust behind the turbo when it's cold. It helps the truck warm up faster by creating more backpressure. It will re open when you hit the break or gas pedal. It will also close again if you let the truck idle after hitting either pedal and it's still cold.
