      You played that hand ok. :)
      Preflop you have no raising hand, so you take the freecard. On the flop you have Top Pair with not a good kicker, but a backdoor Nutflushdraw + 5 Outs to improve to Two Pair or better. So you could be ahead here and betted. After the re-raise (even a minreraise) and a coldcall you assumed to be behind and folded, which is fine. :)
