White smoke from under middle of care when idle

Hi Guys really could do with some help. I have a 118d msport that is a year old. On Friday when idle, there was an increasing amount of white smoke that started to come from the passenger side of the car. No warning lights came on and I drove off and the smoking stopped
Any ideas please?

A couple of thoughts from an amateur: White smoke can be steam, especially if it has no odor. Steam can develop if coolant gets where it shouldn't, like into a cylinder if the head has been off and was put on again without proper torque on the head bolts. If it just occurred once, I wonder if moisture got somewhere it shouldn't and then boiled off. But if it occurs again, you should get a more professional opinion.
