not sure if this is a sexual problem but sometimes when me and my boyfriend are having sex, it almost feels like his penis is pushing on my bladder (or some sort of organ?) and then sometimes when i urinate, its dark in colour and had an odour to it? can you help in telling me what it could be?

As you can see, your bladder is in front of your vagina and uterus (ie, closer to your belly button). So it is possible that the penis can press against it, causing some discomfort and sometimes the urge to pass urine. You can ease this discomfort by passing urine before sex.
It may also be that you're feeling his penis directly pushing up against your cervix, which is at the base of the uterus. This can be a normal feeling during intercourse, but if it is uncomfortable, you can experiment with him penetrating you less deeply.
I think that your urine symptoms are probably not related. If it is just dark (no blood) and has an odour, you're likely to be dehydrated, which causes your urine to become more concentrated. I'd encourage you to drink plenty of water.
If you're also having pain on passing urine or needing to urinate more frequently/ urgently, this could be the beginning if a urinary tract infection. In this case, you'd need to see a doctor for treatment.
