Hi ancd welcome to XXXXXXX Thank you for the query.
There are many factors which can cause urine to smell and this is nothing serious. Most commonly this is caused by uroinfection or vaginal infection and you dont need to have some urinary symptom. Also, many food and drinks such as asparagus, popcorn, garlic and fish can cause it. If there is dark urine then some liver and gallbladder problems must be considered.
So if this persist for few more days I suggest to do basic urine analysis just to rule out uroinfection. Wish you good health.Regards
