First look if the coolant level in the expansion reservoir is at normal level, or if its low, indicating a real leak.
When you start a cold engine, the coolant will warm up and expand, causing a higher pressure in the cooling system. An eventual leak will appear then. If there is just water on the radiator cooling fins, it can start evaporating when the radiator becomes hot, causing some steam.
Take care if there is a small leak, that the coolant level doesn´t go down too far, because that could cause the engine to overheat.
