In brief: Go to the clinic
If you think you have bv, go to the doctor to make sure.
You may be right but a doctor should look to make sure that there isnt a secondary infection going on at the same time. If you do, it can be treated with antibiotics. In general it is best not to try to diagnose yourself.
