How to tell if ground turkey is still good?

I bought some ground turkey at Whole Foods last thursday and it has been in my fridge ever since. When I unwrapped it today to make turkey quinoa burgers, it was still pink and not slimy but i couldn't tell if it smelled okay. It didn't smell "bad" but I really couldn't decide if it smelled like ground turkey should smell.

I don't cook meat very often so I decided that I would just make them and now they're done. I'm nervous though b/c I would prefer NOT to get e.coli or something tonight.

Does anyone have any advice or can you describe how raw ground turkey normally smells?

Thank you!
