      You should raise bigger pre-flop.
      I would make it 0,6$.
      Your flop bet is fine, but both CO and MP are middlestacks. So you're folding 1,5$, but could win 8$. So you have to be really sure that CO has Jx or 33 here.
      Giving the pot odds I can't fold and I probably has 2 outs if I'm behind.

      By bet/folding you're giving away a chance to win 8$ for putting in extra 1,5$. Giving pot odds it is very though laydown.

      Ok, so you basically say i am so committed that i have to call the reraise?

      I don't think that is the case. If i would think like this I'd have to call down every small raise. Usually I have reads enough on my opponents to be able to say that the tend to bet small amounts for getting money on their good hands rather than bluffing me out.

      In this situation i would have been very very amazed if none of those two would have the Jack.
