Not necessarily. Water is a normal byproduct of combustion. You are not using any coolant, right? Lots of cars start and a lot of water comes out the tailpipe, normal.

coolant more so that water, especially even after the car is warm. if you arent sure, go around the back and if the exhaust has a sweet smell to it, then it's coolant that you are burning. head gasket and water pump are the first two areas i would look into it ASAP...
