Here is NW Florida, they recently started bringing in a grey white pollen. Changes in color are normal. I don't recall what it is locally and would have no idea for your region, but non-yellow pollen happens.

Gray pollen in Seattle area now is most likely from the blackberry, our major nectar source, which is now blooming everywhere. Orange pollens my bees recently brought in were Japanese snowbell and cistus (I did ID under microscope), but yours could be false dandelion, multiflora rose, or other plants, depending on what you have nearby.
