No, but...: ... It would make me think of gonorrhea, trichomonas, chlamydia, or a guy who eats lots of those little hot peppers.

NO.This is GC: No. Syphilis initial lesion is a painless small ulcer with sharp edges on the organ. It'll follow in few weeks with a rash. What you have is more typical of urethritis more likely gonorrhia.............

Penile Discharge: Nope. It is either gonorrhea or chlamydia. Syphilis causes a non-painful ugly large pustular sore and then a rash. You have an std but it does not sound like syphilis.
