At your age, the most important cause is urinary tract infection; with enlarged prostate being the unlerlying cause.
Also, it could be discharge from foreskin related infection.

Hence the next steps would be detailed physical examination followed by urine analysis. A physician nearby can perform the examination and order for urine analysis. Treatment will be based on the findings and urine analysis report.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications
