Is their something wrong with my vagina?
the most important factor is that you are peeing on yourself and this should be addressed. There are many things you can do non-surgically to improve the tone of your vagina such as ThermiVa, feminist and the MonoLisa. I would consider these a great options since they would address the urinary incontinence you are experiencing as well as the tone of the vagina.
there also creams that can be used to lighten the pigmentation surrounding your anus or vulva area.
Best of luck

Advice on vaginal concerns following delivery
Thank you for your questions with the attached photos. What you're noticing and are bothered by is very common following pregnancy and a subsequent vaginal delivery.
You describe signs and symptoms of vaginal relaxation due to a vaginal delivery, specifically your urinary incontinence and the feeling that the inside area is dropping. You need to see a urogynecologist to evaluate these issues and who can offer treatment options. Since you also have aesthetic concerns regarding the size and color of your labia this specialist should have experience in both reconstructive and cosmetic vaginal surgery. Your gynecologist may help you with your relaxation symptoms, but unless he/she specializes in cosmetic gynecology then you wouldn't be able to address the other issues. You should not see a plastic surgeon since they have no experience or training in vaginal surgery which you may need due to your vaginal relaxation symptoms.
Please see the below link of my website which details the training necessary to address all of your concerns.
Best of luck,
