The urine smelling foul and looking very dark is usually a sign that you are not drinking enough fluids.

I some what thought that and I have increased my fluid intake with little or no results also the change in my semen is concerning.

With respect to your urine, if it is not improving with more hydration, you could always drop off a specimen with your physician and they could test it just to make sure there is nothing major wrong with it such as infection or microscopic blood. It's strange to have foul smelling semen like you describe but different foods have been known to affect the smell of semen. It could possibly be your diet. Hope this helps.
