I may possibly have STD because I think I am experiencing some symptoms and I am not sure if it is something serious or just a phase. Should I panic?

Currently I am experiencing liquid and slightly transparent discharge, unusual yellow color of the urine, burning feeling/pain during penetration, rashes around the vagina (but I'm not sure if this is from wearing a napkin all the time).
These symptoms started 2 weeks after my first sex with the guy but he isn't showing signs of STD.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Vaginal discharge is normal and can occur at any time. So, that is not a sign of an STD. Unusually yellow urine is also not a sign of an STD. It simply means you're dehydrated.
Itching and/or burning sensations in the vaginal area, as well as rashes usually signify an infection which does not always relate to an STD.
However, since you do have signs of infection you need to see a gynecologist as soon as possible. Planned Parenthood is a good way to get fast, quality service.
Keep in mind that people can have an STD for a long time without having any symptoms. So, even if your boyfriend does have an STD, he will not necessarily have symptoms. So, if you test positive for STD, it is best that he best tested as well.
Below I have pasted a link to a HER article on the symptoms of STD's:
