In brief: Yellow tongue
Possibly due to debris and bacteria in the mouth and on the tongue overnight.
Be sure that your night time oral care includes brushing your tongue gently, but thoroughly.

In brief: Several reasons
While debris is a possibility there is also evening coffee, tobacco use, and also acid reflux could contribute.
If it persists get it checked.
