Problem is simple - you have one or more burnt out glowplugs. The car will still start on 3 or 4 glowplugs firing but the cylinders where the plugs are burnt out will not fire until the heat in them builds up to the point to ignite the fuel resulting in a miss and unburned diesel in the form of blueish smoke out the exhaust until the cylinders warm up. If one or more are gone - replace them all as the others will follow soon.
