Clear urine with bad smell, without pain. UTI?

Resolved Question:

Hello, I would like for you to please tell me what you think about this...... My urine is clear because i drink lots of water but it is smelly, I thought i had a UTI about a week ago so i took a home test and it was positive and i took the over the counter meds. for it that turned my urine red and i figured i was fine. But the smell is still present. There is no pain, its clear as water with just a mild hint of yellow. I'm not in any pain and i believe i got the UTI for all of the long bathes i used to take, and when i say long i mean i used to be in there for hours.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concerns.
I need to know the names of the medicines you took before commenting. The only medicine that can turn urine red is Nitrofurantoin, but that is an antibiotic. Also, I will still suggest you to get an urine culture done, because infections can't be treated with OTC drugs. It can rather ascend up and cause further problems.
Hope you understand,
