In brief: Bleeding in mouth?

A bloody or metallic taste in the mouth is likely due to bleeding from one's gums or another part of the mouth.
Rough foods like hard breads, tacos, or potato chips can scrape friable (weak flesh tissue that bleeds easily) areas of the inside of the mouth and cause a little bleeding. A dentist can clean the teeth, check for gum disease, and look for friable areas or any signs of mouth cancer.
