Sounds like a head gasket to me. If it were a fuel leak you would get black smoke upon start up and then it would probably go away. White smoke is an indicator of burning coolant (you can usually smell it too) Check your oil for coolant mixed in. You can also do wet and dry compression tests to verify this.
U must have to check on the valve seals cz for white smoke after starting after a long stay it emitts cz it is burning oil deposits from the worn out valve seals or guides
