Uncertain cause: The color of the semen can vary. It can be yellowish or milky. It is uncertain what gives a constant color . However in the face of inflammation of prostate which will cause bleeding and red blood in the semen, with time the blood can appear brown and then turn yellow. But it clears up in time.Same events can happen after biopsy of prostate. You can certainly have semen analysis and or culture .
