Default White smoke out of One tailpipe

Hey guys ever since I put straight pipes were the flowmasters were on a cold start I notice the white smoke comes out of the one pipe alot more than the other, and once its warm nothing comes out, it looks like condensation, but Why more out of one than the other, the car also runs good and the coolant level only drops a little after a week or more driving, Why do you guys think this is?

If your losing coolant slowly you might have a head gasket leak which would help explain the extra condensation on one side right after startup. After its warm it burns it off so quickly you don't even notice it. How much coolant are we talking, it could also be a bad radiator cap or seal between the TB and EGR spacer.

Did it do this before you put on the straight pipe?
