Hi,
Welcome to HCM.

There is every possibility of multiple etiology for your problem. More than one infection could have occurred at the same episode. Apart from MRSA, you may likely to be infected along with Gonorrhea or Chlamydia (organisms spread through sexual route).
You consult a Dermato-venereologist or a Genito-urinary physician and send the specimen of your urethral discharge for smear examination and culture and sensitivity examination for both STD and non-STD organism once again and get treated accordingly. For MRSA also alternate and better drugs of choice are available.
You will be alright.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
