May be normal...: Your existing urine odor and cloudiness could be just normal and unique for you as long as urinalysis from properly collected fresh urine is normal since its odor just reflects what you consume and its cloudiness is related with alkaline urine which usually contains more amorphous phosphate crystals, leading to cloudy urine. So, seek counseling and confirming as described. Best wish..
