could be thrush, which is very common.  Thrush is basically yeast overgrowth, and people get it from many things including antibiotics, birth control pills, foods, etc... Yeast thrives on sugar, so try "laying low" on the sweets for now.  You should definitely have a doctor check it out. If it is thrush, your doctor will give you an anti-fungal to take for a few days, and voila!  A magic trick! Turning a white tongue pink again!
Just for the record, if it isn't thrush, I get a "pass" for trying. But it really does sound like it, thrush can be very uncomfortable...

As DJ_Kleen said, it may be thrush, which is easily treatable, along with some other possibilities, but that is for a doctor to determine. Make a doctor's appointment and then you can go from there.
