can costochondritis also cause metallic taste in mouth and pink foamy saliva?

NO sounds like: Something else altogether or unrelated. However pink foamy saliva and a metallic taste means that you are bleeding from somewhere in your mouth, throat or otherwise. If it persists i would seek medical care sooner rather than later.
