In brief: Possible
Dysgeusia ) is the scientific term for a metallic taste in the mouth.
This problem has several possible causes. Medications, medical or dental conditions, as well as environmental factors can be the culprit. Determining the cause, when possible, is helpful in eliminating or treating the problem. I would contact your health care provider if this has been happening for a while.

In brief: Maybe-it all depends
It all depends on where the taste is coming from. Bad taste, called dysgeusia, could occur from medications like Flagyl or clarithromycin, or from gum disease.
Bacterial deposits could also create a bad taste, so a visit to the dentist is required to identify the cause. Make sure you are drinking enough water, too.
