Bleeding gums : oral hygiene does not confine itself to brushing alone, you also must clean between your teeth DAILY! using floss and or a water pick, make sure your toothbrush is a soft bristle brush. Soft bristles are more flexible and cover more surface area of the tooth. Ideally you should brush and floss after every meal but 2x a day if thorough is sufficient. As for the bleeding you should see your dentist

Bad taste and smell: Several factors can lead to each topic, my first recommendation would be to consult with your Dr, medications, sinus infection, poor oral hygiene are some contributors to the taste part, but there are other systemic issues that could also be causing the body odor part.
