In brief: Most often

Most often a side effect of many medications.
It is not a serious condition and is quite common. If it persists beyond a few weeks, consult with your physician or dentist. Make sure you are maintaining good oral hygiene.

In brief: Metallic taste

Many times this taste is a result of gingival bleeding.
If your gums are red, swollen and /or bleeding, this would explain the taste. As was mentioned, medications can aslo alter taste. In other cases, problems with the middle ear can cause a tast alteration often presenting as a metallic taste.
