hesitation when cold

I have a 2015, 26K miles, stock. Twice in the last week, when I start out in the morning, I take off and the engine will act like I have let off the throttle and then go back on, like a hesitation, light acceleration, not at a shift point. Only does it once and only when engine is cold. Fuel filters have around 6K on them. This is not dead pedal as I am not letting off the accelerator. I have no other issues, it runs perfect otherwise. Any ideas?

Let it warm up a little more. Mine does that sometimes (2013) if I try to take off immediately after startup. I give it 3-4 minutes and its fine.

PS: always thought it was probably a bit of condensation because it usually only happened after running for awhile and then sitting overnight.
