Are there are open source solutions to backup linux system without shutting it down? An application that could do bare metal recovery besides Clonezilla or Mondo Rescue. I'm a complete beginner with linux OS. Any tutorial would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums!
Not sure, but I believe most if not all the imaging apps for Linux require that partitions be unmounted for backup image purposes. I'm currently using FSArchiver and it works great, but it too wants unmounted partitions. You can find some alternative backup and recovery options here:
Backup & Recovery | Linux App Finder
Maybe someone else will reply with some better news for you and some apps that don't mind imaging mounted partitions.oz

back-in-time is brilliant and I use it myself and the worst that can happen is losing an hours worth of data*. It isn't an image backup however and I think that's what "bare metal recovery" implies.
* that's called tempting fate
