I've never seen white antifreeze; it might be OK, but it could be due to contamination/mixing. I wouldn't mix different formulas of antifreeze. The green fluorescent dye is there for various reasons:

1. Identifies antifreeze as poisonous.
2. Aids leak detection.
3. Under severe conditions, the green dye can degrade. Time to renew.

I suggest you read the following link:

It's the ethylene glycol that gives the coolant its "anti-feeze" properties, and this also has an "anti-boil" effect as well. Most formulations will be OK, as they should be mostly ethylene glycol.

Thank you so much for your input alloway from Australia
Reading the fact about antifreeze engine coolant help me a lot.
I see most of antefreeze is Ethylene-Glycol

It is looked white to me but posible it is a very light green Because it is very low in the reservoir and hard to tell. I guess any auto supply store able to tell what kind i need to add

Thanks again
