You : You may have an overgrowth of a certain bacteria. Typically it is bacterial vaginosis. There are other bacteria such as ureaplasma and mycoplasma. A gyn doctor can do cultures and simple test to diagnose the problem and treat it with the appropriate antibiotics.

Vaginosis?: I suggest seeing your gynecologist or family doctor and getting testing for bacterial vaginosis as well as other infections. You might have an underlying BV which is causing the foul smell (especially if it is fishy). Also reduce intake of sugar and starch and eat more green veggies to make your body more alkaline which should help some.

Assuming the: Rectum is where you are seeing this - then it is likely mucus. If it persists, you may need to seek evaluation as it could be a sign of abnormal condition.

Vaginal discharge: This change in discharge consistency and color is abnormal and can be due to an infection especially if sexually active. You will need to visit your ob/gyn for pelvic exam for diagnosis of pathogen and appropriate treatment. These type of infections are curable.
