Hello Ms. lybrate-user,
you are suffering from a gum condition called gingivitis. You need to consult a dentist for a professional consult and will have to undergo scaling and polishing of your teeth i.e. A clean up. After that you will have to maintain your teeth and gums with a correct brushing technique.
May be there chances of calculous deposition at the cervical area of teeth. Go to your dentist. If needed get cleaned your teeth (i.e. Scaling and polishing) follow proper brushing technique (watch utube videos for brushing technique) and understand from your dentist.
Most common causes of bad breath is poor oral hygiene which leads to gum disease.

bad smell from mouth could be because of deposits or food lodgement between teeth. Visit a dentist and get your scaling and polishing done. It could also be because of cold, acidity, stomach problems, not drinking enough water, not eating or fasting for long intervals. Brush twice daily, floss regularly. You can avoid it by rinsing after every 1-2 hours.
