Possibly an EGR cooler. I would take it to the dealership and let the warranty cover it. JJ

did you drain the fuel filter in the rail?

it could be gaskets, the cooler could have failed. let the dealer look at it. its still under warranty

I'd lean towards EGR cooler from the smoke but you should have a loss of power also which makes me think it could be something else.

Very possibly oil cooler as well as the EGR. Warranty should take care of it.
