Hello! I'll do my best to answer your question.
A metallic taste in the mouth is a common complaint and can be due to a variety of causes - but the likely most common cause? Likely medication which you may be taking...
In the absence of other symptoms, it is unlikely that a metallic taste in your mouth indicates serious disease. Which is good to know. And, it should subside in a week or less, otherwise, I'd see a Physician. I hope this helps you Ma'am!

I hope the metallic taste is doing better.
If after a week I'd suggest seeing your Physician. (Note: Might you possibly be taking any new medication/s)?
Please let me know if I can help you any further - OK?
