  • There are many  causes of bad breath.It can be because of deposit  on the tongue or it can be becase of some gum disease.As you have mentioned that your gums bleed while rbushing which is the sign of gm disease. you sould maintain very good oral hygeine and should brush your teeth thoroughly and do flossing as whatever food particle is left between the teeth comes out. you should clean your tongue daily.
