Seek healthcare: This could be the sign of an infection. You should seek health care.

Heavy bleeding: The odor is likely due to the extra blood. Go to your doctor if sexually active, persistent irregular bleeding can come from an std. Irregular bleeding is not uncommon, try the birth control pill but i would go in.
