If it clears up after a few miles then its probably the fuel mixture. A cold engine needs a higher fuel content in the fuel air mixture than a warm engine. Check to make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks and if you have old or worn vacuum hoses, replace them. (vacuum line is cheap and easy to replace) might check or replace the fuel filter too if it hasn't been done in a while.
