Look up how to make an incubator with an old cooler-much safer, and I don't see any indication of provided humidity. Embryos need heat,air, and humidity. As for these 2 eggs, you would know if you had seen veins. At 1st it'd be "hm, what's that?" to "holy moly it looks like a giant red spider!" to "is that an eyeball staring at me?" (Answer, why yes, yes it is). After that,the live embryo moves on it's on. If you tap on the egg w/your nail, it starts bobbing up and down. Live bacteria just floats there until you jiggle the egg, swishing it about- unless and until it builds up enough pressure to explode.
Given that you have no veins, which increase w/time, I wld encourage you to end this particular project as it truly is a fire hazard. In the meantime, look up safer homemade incubator instructions. We're all crazy abt our birds, but it's not worth your or your family's safety.

You can check humidity by candling the eggs.
The air cell gets bigger as the eggs incubate. Humidity determines how fast the air cell gets bigger.

There are lots of diagrams online for how big the air cell is supposed to be at which stage.

So candle the eggs after 1 week, and see if the aircell is too big or too small or about right.

If the aircell is too small, you need lower humidity.
If the aircell is too large, you need higher humidity.
If the aircell is just right, keep doing it the same way you have been.

Then candle the eggs again at 2 weeks and again a few days before they are due to hatch.

The eggs DO NOT need perfect humidity the entire time.
They just need it to work out right by the end, and to be high enough when the chicks are actually hatching.

And it dose not smell bad at all
Because it isn't rotten. Something likely started, but didn't survive. I've found those usually don't have much of an smell, even of they die at day 18.
Ooof that sucks but whys it getting bigger
Because there was something, and now the bacteria is growing inside
