Could someone translate this literally? That would be great

As for us, disgust came out (of us). 신물 by itself is something like acid reflux, that terrible taste when you burp the wrong way and something comes up from your stomach. 신물이 나다 is thus an idiomatic expression.

Isn't 신물이 also used for newspaper??

No, but it is close. Newspaper is 신문.
