Brief Answer:
Omega-3 doesn't affect odor of urine.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist,let me assure you, urine odor doesn't change with Omega-3 drugs.
You should drink 8-10 glasses fluids daily.
If the intake of fluids decreases, the urine will be more concentrated and darker.
If you drink more fluids, the color will be more pale and odor free.
To confirm your doubt, you can carry out an urine routine test.
Hope your doubt is cleared.
