My grep is aliased to "grep --color=auto".

I then use grep "<TAB>", where <TAB> is a tab character. But the
result is not colored. How to make the tabs colored?

You might try asking that question on bug-grep.  This is bug-bash and
your issue does not seem to be with bash.

Furthermore: how would you want to color a white space character? As far as I can see grep only alters the foreground color, which doesn't show for white space
