Default Thread coloring

Being new to fly tying and not wanting to speed too much $ on the materials.
I colored my flat waxed white thread with red permanent marker.

My questions are
1. Will the red color stay on the thread?
2. I watched some fly tying videos where the finished flies were colored heavily by permanent markers. Will the odor from the markers deter fish away?
