See a doctor: You have 2 symptoms of a urinary tract infection - urinary urgency and an abnormal smell. Thus, I suspect you have at UTI. You should see a doctor for a urinalysis and an appropriate course of medication. If you don't get this treated, there is a risk it could progress - we definitely don't want that. I would drink-drink-drink water now, while you make arrangements to get to the doctors.
