In brief: Could be infection

There is a normal odor to vaginal discharge, however, the classic text book presentation of bacterial vaginosis is a "fishy smell.
" if you think this is a different smell than usual .... See your doctor and asked to be screened for bacterial vaginosis. Fyi, the smell of vaginal discharge is very sensitive to what you eat. Certain foods can change the smell or how strong the odor seems.
