Maybe normal: I'm guessing you are seeing normal circumvallate papillae -- a row of large bumps across the back of the tongue that can appear wart-like. They are entirely normal. Google it for photos to compare. If those photos don't match, best to see a doctor or your dentist. Whatever they are, I doubt they are the cause of the odor you have noticed.
