White/Blue smoke randomly 7.3

My truck recently started "white" (actually kind of blueish as I was told my spectators) smoking after being stabbed out then let off quickly but it has gotten worse to where its almost anytime I let off the throttle and sometimes even while driving. It smells of burnt oil, I pulled the oil cap and have little blow-by question is; is this a injector and how worried should I be about this problem? It does not smoke at idle nor does it smoke terribly on start up as my old 7.3 did.

if you aren't down any coolant, i'd certainly suspect injector(s)
