Clear white insulin is usually a short acting insulin and the milkier looking ones are usually a little longer acting. The clear is known as regular insulin and the milky is NPH. This is usually the case but not always. it depends on the names of your insulins.

If you draw them up in the same syringe, you always want to draw the clear first then the milky. You never want to contaminate the clear with the milky.
