as long as your vehicle is running good , no overheating, not losing coolant, no coolant/oil problems, then it is likely just condensation. cold outside, warm exhaust == moisture.

mikeatpriestlake is right on. In addition to the condensation in your muffler, etc. The hot air coming from exhaust, going out in to cold air condenses the outside air in to visible 'fog'. Now if you have liquid still dripping out tailpipe after car is fully warmed up, come back and let us know that please.
