Sounds normal to me, when i first start my truck in the morning or when ever its cold, its idle is about 1600 - 1800 rpm, and as it starts to warm up it drops and at normal temp its sits at 700.

Entirely normal for it to go to "fast idle" when first started and cold.

Yup another vote for normal.

Its an automatic choke. When the engine is cold, it revs higher because it warms the engine up and also keeps it from stalling since it is cold. I dont know the physics/details on it, but, an engine is more liable to stall when it is cold.
