In brief: Secretions

Depending on any chemicals used during sex (lubricants, etc) the smell is most likely just a "stirring" of the smells inside the vagina along with any ejaculate that may be present.
Semen has a "smell" unto itself. If using a condom, they have their odor. If you are having a foul or offensive odor, perhaps you have a bacterial vaginosis. A fishy odor is usually bv. Get checked and get treated.
