Hero checks, BB bets $0.50, CO raises to $2.30, 1 fold, Hero... ???

What do I need to do?

I have a good draw, 9 outs to a flush and 3 outs to 
a straight (at that time thought that the 4 outs to a straight ).

But not all of my outs. For example, 9 can help any jack on the higher 
straight. May be higher flashdraw.

Fold? But the fold here is weak (although, perhaps, right!).

3bet - all-in? But after re-raise from the cutoff, my push has 
no fold equity.

Simply call? But the situation here is WA / WB, I do not 
know how to act on the turn, if it is 9 or any diamond card.

What do you think?

Excellent analysis, thank you! Now, I too think so. I need to objectively evaluate my draw, then to discount possible outs and to accept that my hand is not very strong.

I then tilted, and made all-in. One opponent showed Ten of heartsQueen of spades, other has Ten of spadesEight of clubs, but the turn was Four of diamonds and I won. But I've played is not good.

Assuming your gutshot straight draw and low flush draw are live (they are both low), you are only 25% to improve on the turn, yet you have to call $2.30 into a $3.60 (assuming other player doesn't call the reraise.  That doesn't give you the direct pot odds to call.  If you feel they will stack off if you hit, and you are good, you would have implied odds, but it is risky as your draws are weak ones.
