Are new stretchmarks ever be white?

I’m 7 weeks pregnant and just noticed stretchmarks near my right nipple. Can new stretch marks ever be white? Or am I just only now noticing old ones and looking for ways to stress out?!

    It may just be me, we are all very different in our experiences with pregnancy, but my boobs didn't get stretch marks until post birth with breastfeeding. I think generally white is old ones that have faded. Fresh ones are more bright like pink, reds, blues, and purples. 
    I have stretchmarks. It's a genetic thing more than preventative. I have friends with none after 7 kids and I have friends with them everywhere after 1 kid. Keep your skin moisturized but try to not fret over them. They will most likely happen. I think of them as natural tattoos. They tell a story. Hope this helps. And Congrats!
