Get checked.: Burning with urination is due to inflammation of the lower urinary tract. This has many causes, but the most common are related to infection. Sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhea & chlamydia are important causes. Urinary infections of the bladder or prostate also present with this symptom. Get evaluated as infections require treatment to clear & prevent spread.

Prostate enlargement: Other causes possible. However, prostate is likely. Need urology evaluation which will include ultrasound plus exam. Over the counter decongestants and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) make it worse. Need to void frequently and not delay voiding? Sometimes, meds is all you need for now. If it gets worse may need a procedure.

Get urinalysis: Malodorous urine is likely on the basis of an infection in the urinary tract, although at times there are other reasons, including certain vitamins, foods and very concentrated urine. Best bet is to dilute urine by drinking abundantly and get urine checked by your doctor.

Nocturia: Any burning or pain with urination? Do you consume much fluids before bedtime, especially things with caffeine (acts like diuretic)? Any discharge? Do you have to go frequently during the day? Any (family) history of diabetes? These are some questions to discuss with your fp, who can then proceed appropriately with your care.

Most likely prostate: Prostatic issues are most commonly in play. You could have a bacterial prostatitis, either chronic or acute-less likely, or benign prostastic hyperplasia (bph). Both are treatable and most likely. You need to see your doctor, who may also need to perform a prostate exam and order tests as well.

Needs evaluation: Urinating more fequently could be due to a lot of causes including but not limited to urinary tract infection, bladder spasm, diabetes or even drinking more fluid. Time to have it evaluated. See your doctor. At a minimum you should have the urine examined to look for infection or the presence of sugar.
