White smoke at startup and unburned diesel smell

I have a 97 with about 170k miles. When I cold start the truck it white smokes really bad. After driving it the white smoke goes away but it has a real bad unburned diesel smell. Is this a stick injector?

The unburned fuel smell coming from the exhaust still continues after I stop from a 15 mile drive
