Follow dr's advice: Some OB doctors might want to know if you have lost your mucus plug. A good rule of thumb is to go to the hospital if you are contracting every 5-7 minutes, if your water breaks, if you have a flow of blood, or if your baby is moving less than usual.

See your OB: Please your OB ASAP. Not all infections have an odor. Can also be a sign of ruptured membranes.
