      Your odds aren't very good to call on the flop imo. You're getting exactly 2:1 while you need 4.2:1 to make a profitable call. I guess there's implied odds but a normal player isn't gonna stack you off after the flush completes on the turn...

      It also looks like you raised to 50c pre-flop, if only the SB completes it's enough to just raise to 4BB...

      Mandatory raise in position when the SB open completes, although as mentioned you didn't need to make it that big.

      The flop call is probably on the loose side, you indeed have nowhere near the pot odds you need to make a call. However in a blind battle when a player makes a potsize check/raise i expect that he either has nothing or that he'll never fold, so provided that you fire some turn cards when you miss and he looks like he's giving up, i don't think it's a bad play with implied odds.

      Hope it helps.
