What could causes a really foul smell in urine?

I'm a 17 year old male and I havent been sexually active in a really long time. Just to get that out there.
Recently Ive noticed my urine smelling like fish, and so does my penis. It doesnt go away after i shower and it isnt a yeast infection because i have no rashes or pains or infrequent eeing... I also am not on any meds with yeast infectin-related side affects.

I have no clue what it is, but I'd like to know.

Hi,
From history it seems that as you are nor sexually active since long there might be having deposition of smegma on glans penis leading to some local infection and smelly discharge.
There is other possibility of having urinary tract infection as well.
Go for routine urine check up.
Make a habit of cleaning smegma by averting fore skin while taking shower.
Keep local hygiene well maintained.
Take plenty of water.
Ok and take care.
