In brief: Different things

The taste might be a symptom of gum disease.
Even if you don't have gum problems, poor oral hygiene can affect taste. Be sure to brush your teeth carefully at least twice a day and use a tongue scraper to remove the bacteria and debris that can collect on your tongue. Dental work done in the past can break down and alter taste. Blood can also have a metallic taste. Some medications taste metallic.
