I had a tooth pulled 6 days ago and the blood clot fell out yesterday. It doesn't hurt it is just feels like a an awkward hole but it kinda has a odor?

In brief: Sounds normal

If there is no pain, everything is probably fine.
The odor is normal because the blood clot has a smell, and food debris tends to get stuck in there. The hole will go away slowly over several weeks to months. Sounds like the normal healing process is occurring. If you have any questions, see your dentist.

In brief: See your dentist

The odor is probably from food getting caught in the socket and rotting.
Keep it clean and see your dentist tomorrow to check on healing and whether or not anything needs to be done.
