It's normal for water to come out of your tail pipes on a cold start.

^^this^^ especially if you haven't been running it long enough to thoroughly heat up the exhaust system when you've been starting it.

Its a pretty good amount of water it will leave a puddle at idle amd if i rev it up ill create a nice rusty water spot behind me? I will try and let it run longer next time i usually only let it run a few minutes

That's your problem.

A gallon of gas produces almost a gallon of water.
That's why jets leave contails, they consist of ice crystals from the water vapor in the exhaust being frozen.
