Looks fine, do you have a hard upper radiator hose in the morning before you start it the first time?

What would it mean if it was hard?

If your upper radiator hose is hard after the truck has sat overnite and cooled completely down, there is a chance you have a blown head gasket. One symptom can be a little bit of white smoke from the tailpipe on warm up and eventually all the time bc of burning coolant.

And a little bit of white smoke can be from an engine that isn't warmed up yet.

It will generally feel like a tennis ball if it's bad.. you'll know lol.

I'd say you're good as well.
If you are still worried about it you can start watching your coolant levels closer to see if any is dissapearing and/or send in your oil for analysis.
