What does amiotic fluid look like?

I heard it was a clear and had a bad odor or could be strong? Some women have been known to have a reddish brown color, or even a yellowish white cream color, to just clear/ white. Any way's I was just wondering. How do you know you have a rupture in the membrane? I thought I might had leaded yesterday because it was so much, but the Doc said it's probably the baby putting pressure on your cervix.
