Are new stretchmarks red or white?!

Noticed tonight as I was getting out of the shower some white stretch marks on my outer thigh... I've never noticed them before. Are they old that I'm just noticing because my skin is tighter or could they be new? I always through new ones were red.
Also did you notice cellulite got worse during pregnancy and if so did it return to normal after? I was a size 8-10 Pre-pregnancy but always had a bit of cellulite on the back of my legs. I'm 29 weeks now and it's literally appearing everywhere... upper arms, under arms, hips, bum etc. Bad times sad

Old ones are silvery.

Strangely was thinking the same this morning, noticed one on my hip that I didn't know if it was new or old? It's white! Seems more defined than the others which are now 5 years old! Definitely got more cellulite, bum and backs of legs, it did get slighter better but pg again now so starting again shock

I'm hoping cellulite improves after the birth. I already had a bit but my thighs are covered now and it's awful!

New stretch marks for me are purpley red in colour and then they fade to silvery lines
