Hi!
If you were my patient, I would ask you to come in for a check up.  I would probably test forpregnancy, vaginal infections and sexually transmitted infections (depending upon your preference).  MId cycle spotting is not too uncommon. Old blood can have a foul odor too.  It wouldn't surprise me if all of the tests for infection were negative and the blood was causing the odor.  We would just then need to check out why you were having the spotting--maybe some hormone testing +/- and ultrasound.
Hope this helps!
