I just bought my Sportage last 24 Dec. 2012 here in SAUDI ARABIA and i noticed something.
1. In my registration card it shows that the card model i bought was 2013 model (since this was my preference when i bought it) but when I checked the sticker attached to the drivers side, i noticed it was 2012, which is the correct one? will i encounter a problem in the future about this?

2. Lately when i drive my car and turned ON my air-con i noticed some foul smell, where do you think this smell came from?

Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

I'm assuming you have a 2013 model built in 2012. Usually in June, the factory switches over to building the next model year. So in June 2012, they start building the 2013 model, in June 2013, they will start building the 2014 model, and so on. The easiest way to tell the model year for certain is in the VIN number. If the 10th digit of the VIN is "D" it is a 2013 model. "C" is a 2012 model.
