no there isn't a odor and this only happened for about three days after my light cycle and now when i go to the bathroom i don't really see anything but when i stopped spotting i seen what i normally see after a period. it's just that i usually have a cycle that last more than 2 days. I was taking birth control, but i always forget to take it so i take it maybe once or twice a week when i remember. I weigh 153 lbs. i am currently 5'0

Taking the birth control off and on, can cause this irregular bleeding, irregular hormone cycles and irregular discharge.
Also, given your weight, you probably have what is know as PCOS - Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome - and because of your weight, you can have an increase of estrogen in the form of estrone that is increasing your testosterone and insulin resistance and this can cause a lot of problem with your ovaries that you are not ovulating, and hence cause irregular bleeding, pain, cramping, and discharge problems.
So, you should really make an appointment with your ob/gyn, and if you can NOT remember to take the birth control pills which helps PCOS - then you need to be on the Nuvaring, the OrthoEvra patch or a Mirena IUD to help you.
