regardless of what color your smoke is - you potentially have a serious problem. You can be sure that it is cheaper to fix it now rather than wait until the damage becomes catastrophic. Guaranteed - if you wait to fix it - it will fail at the worst time. Such as in the rain, away from home, important event, etc.
