Bad taste in mouth

20-year-old female here, I've had this weird bad taste in my mouth for the past few days and it's gotten worse and worse. It started the night before last after I had dinner and it was pretty faint but it didn't go away. It was still there the next day and it would be much stronger after I ate, but it was more annoying than troublesome. Today, though, it's just awful and it's a lot more metallic than it was the past few days. It's horrible after I eat, but it fades after a while. I did take some Pepto-Bismol for a stomach ache the day this whole thing started, but I haven't found anything that says it can cause a bad taste. I don't really have anything else going on, so I don't know what this could be.
