That can be a sign: of bacterial vaginosis. That odor is not typical of a yeast infection, which would present with a white, thick discharge, not necessarily with any particular odor. You should see your doctor to be diagnosed and treated properly.

Fishy odor: probably Bacterial vaginosis and not yeast as yeast is usually odorless.
