Hallo Elsie
Often a problem with smelling will also affect your taste. The most common causes for this are upper airway infection or a cold, but it could also be caused by medications or nervous system problems like a stroke or Bell's palsy. I think you need to see your doctor for an examination of the sinuses as you may need antibiotics, to see if there are any nervous system reasons for your symptoms and you probably also need to have your urine tested for infection.
