Default Repitching the yeast

Ok. I brewed my first batch of beer. After a few days (4 now to be exact) nothing happened with my yeast for whatever reason. I checked the gravity to confirm. I actually have two questions:

1. Is it ok to repitch the yeast?
2. I tasted the beer when I checked the gravity and it tasted terrible. I want to say almost metallic. Kind of similar to Natty Light which is obviously what i dont want. Is that a bad sign? Should I just give up on this batch and try again?

Thanks for the help.

I wouldn't dump it, beer can change a lot with aging.
Re-pitch if you measured OG and it is the same after 4 days.
