No signs of contamination but there's a strange smell coming from the bags.I inoculated with a spore syringe(2 weeks ago)but they did not germinate.Why did this happen...could be the bags or maybe the syringe?

It could be. It could also have been your fault if you didnt wipe the bags and needle with alcohol or flame it or didnt sterilize them properly (assuming you made the bags yourself). It could also be the syringe..

Bacterial contamination will smell sour, like rotten milk. Grains will look not very healthy, slimey almost. It can be hard to see somtimes, but you can smell it when you put your nose near the filter.

My guess would be that the bags were improperly sterilized.

No,i didn't make the bags nor did i order them.
They were given to me in a trade.Well...they're
bunk.And i'm tossing them out soon...
