Urinalysis: Odors in urine are almost always caused by: Diabetes, Infection, Dehydration or Food Intake. Have a Urinalysis test to determine if there is any abnormalities that need treating. If not, don't worry. Drink lots of water to keep from being dehydrated and take note of what you eat. (It may be that you recognize a food or vegetable that makes your urine specifically minty)
