Unhappy 2018 230i Smoke From Engine

Hey! Hope everyone is having a great day. New to this thread, hope I am in the right place.

I have a 2018 230i with around 10,000km on the car, was purchased in July 2018. Recently, 1-2 days I noticed some light smoke coming from the engine. (Video Below) any idea what this could be?

Thank you! Dealership is checking it out tomorrow.

An acrid non oil gas smell might mean coolant.

An oily gas smell might be crankcase blow by that a ventilation pipe is loose.

No smell could be condensation.
