Brief Answer:
Get proper examinatipn and investigations done

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Irregular and frequent periods can be due to hormonal disturbances or local lesions in cervix, vagina including cervical cancer or fibroids in the uterus.
Brown vaginal discharge with foul smell can be due to vaginal infection, or local lesions in cervix like polyp.
I will suggest you to consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined, investigated including ultrasound, pap smear, vaginal swab examination and get appropriate treatment timely.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Please do get back for further queries.
Wishing you good health.
