Get it checked ASAP, you don't need a vehicle fire. I would think it would be transmission fluid or oil dripping onto the exhaust would be my guess. Time for new gaskets.

Does the smoke smell like burning oil or electrical?

I wouldn't drive the car till you find the source. If it is electrical it could catch fire destroying the car and possibly causing injury to you or someone else.
