Many things can cause colorations on your tongue-but ultimately, tongue hygiene is the key to changing it or preventing it. You need to brush your tongue several times a day or use a tongue scraper. Also, begin using Listerine 2 x daily for 3 weeks and assess your tongue at that point. Nothing serious though!
