2012 GJC smoking on startup

Our 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo is smoking on startup. This has happens twice that I have noticed when wife is backing out of garage. Smoke cloud is blue tint which says oil to me. Only 4k miles on the V6. Only 2 oil changes, last one 1k miles ago. Any thoughts? Will warranty cover?

Most of those posts were V8s and there is a fix for that... or did I miss the V6 part.

Check that the oil level is not overfilled... and I would report it to the dealer.

I read the other thread and it seemed those were V8s, mine is the V6. Taking it to the dealer next week but I wanted to have the upper hand on possible causes as I figure the dealer will just do nothing.
