when i start the car it goes at 1200 rpm, it was a week ago. Now when I turn it on it goes to 1800 rpm. This takes about 10 seconds and then returns to normal
I don't know if it's some kind of problem or so.
Otherwise I drive it around the castle for short distances.

When too cold outside and you've left the car not started for a longer period of time (hours, or overnight), the engine components get cold, so when the car is started it goes to higher RPMs and stays there for up to 30 seconds (time really depends on the temperatures). This is normal behavior of the car with 2.2 diesel engine.

This is normal, to be compliant with Euro 6 regulations the Skyactiv-D revs higher for 10 seconds on cold starts to lower its toxic emissions! Mine does the exact same!
