Unsure about my call

Okay so no one showed aggression on the flop and then the turn presented me with the flush draw. Best to bet and see where you are, right? Even though I'm first to act? I'm not used to making this play, wondering if it's the right one in the long run.
So then I'm raised. It will cost me another 0.40 into a pot of 1.55, which figures out to be 3.875 to 1. So 4 to 1, which is what a flush is. When your pot odds
equal the odds you will hit your hand, is it a profitable play?
Also, this bet occured on the turn. With these calculations do you have to account for the fact there is only one card left and not 2? 9 outs is 9 outs, I'm just unsure if you have to change your thinking a bit because it's the turn.
I apologize if this post is all math related and not that creative, I'm just trying to get these concepts down.
Thanks in advance!
