Imagine that I have two files of the same name in two different folders. Now, one of them is opened and I am not sure which one is that. How to find it?

I tried "save as" option and that is not helping me much.

I am using OS X Mavericks.

In most apps you can Command-Click or Right-Click on the document's icon in the title bar of the app and it will display a drop down menu with the full path. You can select a folder from the drop down to open it in the Finder.

This also works with "secondary-click" (right-click). – Mateusz Szlosek Jul 17 '14 at 14:36
I forgot about right clicking. I updated the answer. – Mark Jul 17 '14 at 14:38
