Tough spot: Flopping top pair from BB on multi-way limped pot

A situation that I find very difficult and am in quite a bit is as follows:

6 handed NLHE cash game:

-I am in the BB
-multiple people limp
-I hold a marginal hand suck as J7o, K6o, Q3o

Flop comes QJ4, two suited. I have flopped pair with no redraw and a terrible kicker. How do you proceed?

Perhaps an actual HH would help clarify what I'm discussing:
