In brief: Need a check-up

Could be anemia, could be furry tongue syndrome, could be unusual diet, vitamin deficiency.
Go for complete, thorough check-up.

In brief: Tongue scraper

It could be something as simple as poor oral hygiene.
Assuming you have no medical problems and have ruled that out, i would suggest you use a tongue scraper or tongue brush on a daily basis and see if that eliminates the problem. Otherwise you should consult first with your dentist, and then with a physician if necessary.
