Brief Answer:
see doctor

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
It sounds like you may have an enlarged prostate or a urinary tract infection. You need to see your doctor for an exam and urinalysis. Since there is no pain or odor an enlarged prostate is more likely. In any case, you need an exam to sort this out.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and getting regular exercise and plenty of sleep.
See your doctor soon,
Dr. Robinson
