Hello from JustAnswer.
Yes, the primary concern about pus draining from the penis would be an infection of the tube in the penis, called urethritis. This is commonly from one of two sexually transmitted germs, chlamydia or gonorrhea. There are some non-sexually transmitted germs that can cause urethritis, but the sexually transmitted germs are more common in adults that are sexually active.
Therefore, it is important that you see your doctor to be checked for these infections, and if positive, both you and your recent sexual partners should be treated with antibiotics.
It would also be better for you to stop having sex until this has been diagnosed and treated.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
