I to strip leading whitespace characters form the URL passed to esc_url() function.

At the moment if we pass an URL with leading spaces (or other whitespace characters) to esc_url(), it returns an empty string, even if the URL is correct.

What about trailing whitespace?

Trailing spaces are correctly replaced by %20. I don't know if there is any case when trailing spaces in an URL would be necessary, but personally I would leave them, because they are not causing any issues.
