What you are seeing is unburned fuel coming out the tail pipe. Your Caddy is fuel injector so you shouldn't have to pump the gas pedal. The downside to pumping the gas pedal is that a little bit of raw gas gets into the crank case deluting your oil.

The white smoke concerns me. Make sure the head gasket is ok. As for the fuel pump. Make sure that the fuel lines are not leaking.
