Dental exam 1st: There are lots of dental and medical reasons for bad taste and bad breath. See the following site for more information: http://smilesapartcosmeticdentist.Com/fresh-breath-control.Htm the most common cause is poor oral hygiene, cavities, and gum problems. Post nasal drip, acid reflux are common medical causes. Start by ruling out the dental ones first.
