Is this bacterial vaginosis if you have a mild discharge but have odor?

Probably: A "fishy" odor is the single most diagnostic symptom of bv, even if there is no discharge. But other things can cause odor as well, such as a retained tampon or yeast with it's "yeasty" odor. Your doctor can confirm if the odor is due to bv.
