The best person to talk to about this is a doctor, really - antibiotics (which are the treatment for gonorrhea) require a prescription, but depending on who you see, they may be reluctant to prescribe them, especially if you aren't 100% sure that you've been exposed. Taking antibiotics (or really, any kind of medication) unnecessarily isn't really beneficial, so talking to a healthcare provider is going to be your best bet.
