Thanks for posting your query.
Urine smell and color are not fixed characters and vary very much accornding to the hydration status and food intake. They can vary due to medication also. Even the same person can have various changes in a day itself.
If you do not have any local symptoms like buring sensation during urination or discharge then you do not need woory.
It is a normal variation.
I hope this answers your query.
