Scary top pair

I'm in E2 and having just joined the table and post forced bet of 0.05.

My hole cards are Qs 3s.

UG calls, I check, 4 limpers and BB checks.

Flop Qc 3c 5c

Two check and I bet. I've got top pair and I think probably at least one opponent has the draw but probably not the flush. Am I right to do this?

There is a raise behind me and two players fold and so do I. Am I right to do this?

Re: Scary top pair
You are playing way to weak on this one. Two pair is huge and I'd take it against a flush draw any day. You have the best of it by far and even if his flush hits, you still have redraws to a full house.

I'd definitely bet out the turn and see what happens - assuming another flush card doesn't come. If raise, I'd probably just check/call the river unless another flush card came.

Yea - gotta see the raise - you have 4 cards to a boat.
