after three days if you have bad taste it is normal if there is no pain and swelling. This is a normal healing process. When the socket starts healing the bad taste will go. But you should follow all the instructions given by your dentist, like doing warm saline rinses and not using the straw and not smoking. If you do ot follow the instructions then the extraction socket can get infected leading to dry socket.
