odd smell from attic

Will you please advise whom should I call to find out how to get rid of the odd smell upstairs from the attic? There was a small water leak mark on the bedroom ceiling upstairs right below the attic where the sweated pipe is located. I feel like there was a leak from this pipe or somewhere from the roof that went thru the dry wall. Also when I look at the bedroom where the original leak mark was spotted from outside of the house, part of the materials attached under the roof was distorted compared to the other parts along with the roof end..
