Since I got my two budgies the male one vent looks really bad it's big and dirty I make sure to shower them a few times a week with sprayed water but I am afraid that this has to do with a medical problem do I need to take him to a doctor

Yes, you need to have him seen by a vet that has experience with birds to determine if there in an infection in the GI tract that needs treatment with some type of medicine.

I asked 2 local vets and they said it was normal

Please update with what you find out from the vet.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.
Having your budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future.
Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.

I surely would not go to either of those vets, it is not normal for the vent area to be stained and missing feathers, there are various reasons that could cause it but it is not normal.

sorry for the late respond
I just came from the vet
it's the best vet in my city
the doctor works at the College of Veterinary Medicine at our local university
The doctor made a card for each bird to record their medical history
He gave me some vitamins to put in with the water to make vent feathers more
But the budgie's general health is very good
