Why is my car emitting white and blue smoke?

Why is white and blue smoke emitting from my car's exhaust?

This reads like oil is being burned. It could be linked to a number of causes (worn valve seals or an issue with the turbocharger). It may also be burning coolant.

I would suggest getting it checked by a qualified mechanic and keeping a close eye on the oil and coolant levels - if the car runs low on either then the engine will become seriously damaged.
