In brief: STD check needed

Colored (yellow, green, brown) vaginal discharge suggests infection, including STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia, assuming you are sexually active.
Possibly a vaginal infection like trichomonas or bacterial vaginosis; these usually cause odor. Get examined and tested ASAP, either with your doctor, your local health department STD clinic, or a reproductive health clinic like Planned Parenthood.
