Don't turn it on. Unplug everything and take it to a repair shop.

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Take the side panel off and look for anything not connected properly. 

It's most likely the PSU or the motherboard (Don't mess with it)

Do what Mello and bleedblue said, but my recommendation is when taking the side panel off, maybe look for the source of the smell. If exploring deeper for the source requires unlplugging cables/dismantling the pc, then don't do those two things. Just put the panel back on and get it looked at like bleedblue said.

Take it back to store you got it from. It must have at least 1 year warranty, and something like that is covered under it.
