It could be the gardnerella that is causing the fishy odour. Gardnerella is often associated with bacterial vaginosiis where the 'good' bacteria in the vagina are depleted, allowing other oragnisms to infect it. You can try using yoghurt with live cultures to replenish the lactobacilli. Spotting at midcycle could be due to ovulation.

Dear Kim
Please consult your dr urgently. I don't think that is healthy dear as you said it's frustrating. I don't know what you can drink to make that go away, only the dr can determine the problem.
