white spit (always)

For the past 8 or so years I've had this white spit all the time. I can always taste it and it tastes like bread or something, (or yeast?)

It gets better sometimes, but I do think that it is a bacteria that shouldn't be there! It gets worse when I burn my tongue or drink beer, and will show up most right in the morning. This morning I spit in a ziplock bag and this afternoon the bubbles were all settled. What I see is that it's white, a little bit yellowish, and if you look really close, the white color is coming from very tiny particles, the spit is not consistent throughout. It looks a bit like rotten milk. The picture is attached below..

I asked a walk-in clinic doctor once because I had a similar eye infection of white goo, and he said it was probably normal, or he said if I had it for very long that it was probably nothing to worry about, but I'm sick of it... I remember a time when I didn't have this white spit and i want to get rid of it!

Please help! Your information is very appreciated!
