BLEEDING GUMS AND TEETH

good day.when i brush my teeth then my gums bleed badly.it bleeds so badly that when i spit out the foam if the toothpaste then its all red because of the blood.Besides that..i have 2 teeth thats very close to each other.Sometimes food and stuff gets stuck in between and when i press on the gum then i get this nasty smell from in between the teeth.and when i chew gum and i chew on that side of the 2 teeth,then that smell comes again.and its really bad.i' m ashamed and chew gum whole day because i' m scared my breath is gonna smell.Please help

you seem to have gingivitis or possibly periodontal disease.
See a dentist for an examination as well sa a cleaning.
If the dentist finds it necessary- xrays may be needed to determine the extent of the gum disease
