Condensation in the exhaust is normal, it should go away as it warms up. If it doesn't go away check the coolant reservoir, if it's low get it checked asap.

If it is only water, you really don't have anything to worry about. if it smells sweet... start worrying and check it out.A lot of cars give out a lot more water due to condensation then one would expect.

It takes a pretty good run on a highway to get all the water out of the exhaust, the muffler is very hard to dry out.

If you only make short runs the water never gets a chance to clear, if you can get the car out on the interstate once a month it will help to dry out the exhaust.
