Default Smell from engine when I get on it...

So i get this funky smell coming from the engine when i get on the gas. Not when I'm just cruising or at idle. It almost smell like a faint sulfer or something like that. Any body had anything like this happen, please give me your input, is 90 hatch with a 1.6. Thanks
