Headaches can be a symptom of iron deficiency, as can pale stools.  The smell may be coming from the constipation that can be a side effect of taking the iron.  Are you taking vitamin Ester-C (at least 250 mg) for best absorption of the iron?  I recommend you tell your doctor of your symptoms and ask if getting a follow-up CBC (complete blood count) and possibly another iron panel would be appropriate.

P.S. Please, be sure and ask if they would test to see how well you are absorbing iron- to see if your iron receptors are working properly too.  How long have you been taking iron and how much are you taking?
