Keep waking up with a bad taste in my mouth and spitting out very small amounts of blood in the morning. What could it be?

In brief: See your dr

Having a funny taste in your mouth, and spitting up blood is not normal.
So it's best to go to your doctor, and let s/he look into this deeper, and see exactly what is going on. S/he will have to do a physical exam, and may need to refer you to an ENT doctor if warranted. Finding the source of the bleed is important! then, you'll know the cause.

In brief: Different causes...

The source of your bleeding in the mouth is the key to solving ur problem. If the blood comes from inside ur mouth, then most likely is from ur gums, ; u have gum inflammation(gingivitis), or if more chronic, then it is more established and called periodontitis.
But if ur bleeding originated from internal /digestive system, then seeing ur family physician or internist/ent can help u more.
