In brief: I

I recommend you get a proper examination, and testing by a medical professional.
Vaginal odor can be caused by infections like bacterial vaginosis and even foreign bodies left in the vagina (i.e. Tampon). The only way to find out the cause and get treated is by seeing your doctor. Good luck.
