well first you need to rule out any actual bleeding in your mouth from ulcers or back of throat. second sinus, throat , gums and tooth infection can cause similar breath.use of certain medicine and multivitamin is also linked with metallic breath.

Brush your teeth after you eat,Floss at least once a day,Drink plenty of water,Use a fairly new toothbrush,Chew fresh parsley or suck on a sugarless mint . The above are some of the remedies you can try. also taking Prilosec OTC will help.
