I believe that most symptoms of blue smoke on start up point to worn guides or valve stem seals. The former is EXPENSIVE; the latter not as bad because the head doesn't need to be removed.

Though with less than 30k miles and only a 4 (or 5) year old engine, I can't imagine why they'd be worn so soon. If you do a SEARCH and type in "BLUE SMOKE STARTUP" I'm sure you'll find a bunch of info regarding the problem.
