You could have a couple of problems, first thing that I can think of is you have either a head gasket leaking coolant into a cylinder, a cracked cylinder head, leaking injector causing a cylinder to be flooded out for a few seconds after setting overnight. Having the codes checked could help with diagnosis. I would only drive it if you have too. If it is a head problem you could damage converters, O2 sensors. Get it checked as soon as you can.
