Terrible breath 2 weeks after implant

Hi! I got my implant around 2 weeks ago (May 9th), and it felt like it healed mostly fine with almost no pain and the stitches fell off on their own after about 10 days.

However, the day after the stitches fell off (around 11 days after the implant), I started noticing a terrible bad breath. Eating/drinking/brushing my teeth would only temporarily help reduce the bad breath. Has anyone had any similar experiences to this?

Also, I attached a photo of the implant site - does it look ok? They said they did not put in a healing abutment and there’s this weird white white/translucent bump that I can also feel with my tongue, what is that?

Thank you!!
