Sure, anything causes it for me.  I can simply type a paragraph of text, hit
the preview button and I will have whitespace added at the beginning and
end.  You don't see it using the advanced editor, only when in HTML
Formatted mode.  It doesn't pad with  , so the story saves correctly,
it is just a visual thing.  After previewing, when I go back into the HTML
Formatted editor, the first line is indented by several spaces.

It may not be a big issue, just kind of annoying to see my text moved over.

Very possible.  What I had done was take several stories from my 1.4.1 site
and cut / paste them into the test 1.5 site.  My thought was things should
work as they did before, just improved.  This is where I saw the issue.

Using the [code] tag works as it should.  Actually using <pre><code> works
and those tags are automatically replaced with a [code] tag on preview,

You are correct, things are working as they should.
