    Carbon monoxide has no smell. But if you are worried buy a CO detector as they cost peanuts.

    Get a carbon monoxide detector. If it shows up, call your landlord IMMEDIATELY.

    You cannot know if something is toxic by its odor. In this case in particular, carbon monoxide is entirely odorless, which is one of the reasons it is so dangerous.

    has it been newly painted? new furniture?

    either one could emit fumes.

    in any case, open windows. If you get dizzy get out and call 911 (or the English equivalent).
