Probably the cause of the smell. penecillin changes your gut microbiome.

It'll get rid of your UTI if the infective bacteria is sensitive to penicillin. If it's resistant then it won't do much at all. This is why we do urinalysis when urine samples are sent to pathology labs. To ascertain what species of bacteria may be causing a particular infection, and what antibiotics are most effective at eliminating them. Indiscriminately taking antibiotics is not very effective.

You usually need targeted antibiotics for UTIs and STDs. See your doctor if you think something's wrong.
Are you feeling any itching, pain, or burning? Unusual discharge? If not, it's unlikely you have an infection. Still, if something doesn't seem right, get medical advice.
