I love to play punk-rock music, stuff like blink 182 or green day.

I play guitar but when I'm recording songs I would like to do the bass too.

I was thinking of getting a Squier bass.

Guitar wise, I would never buy a Squier product. Still I don't know much about bass products. What do you think of them ?

What amplifier should I buy too ? I need an headphone output so I can record with Audacity.

I love Godin product, since they are made where I live and not in China. Should I save money to get a better bass ?

I will play like root notes and stuff like that.

1. Don't buy a Behringer one.

A good amp to start out with is an Acoustic b10, it is $100 US dollars and sounds great.

It's pop-punk. So what?

And Epiphone's are not good for punk/pop-punk. They're good for hard rock maybe.

TS, I would go for a 70s Vintage Modified P-Bass personally, it'll get you closer to the punk sound you're going for.
In the bass chat:

Except that your options there are pretty limited, a semihollow, a short scale SG, or a thunderbird. All of which sound pretty bad.

Lies. EB's and TB's suck, never played a Casady but I can say that you're better off with a CV or VM Squier.

Back onto subject, Have you ever thought of getting a p-bass? I mean, mike dirnt used one. And a jazz bass isn't going to give you the growl of a p-bass.
GEAR:

Ibanez GSR205FM

Trace Elliot GP7SM 200watt bass combo

Squier also has a mike dirnt P-bass which is pretty good also the CV 50's & 60's p-basses are great,cheap basses

yes a p-bass is what is needed for that punk bass sound...

(off topic)

Blink has some punk-rockish stuff (Dude Ranch,) but the rest of their stuff is pop punk. Good pop punk that is

About the precision and Jazz bass, I really don't know the difference... I couldn't distinguish a bass tone from another.

Get your self to the store and play both...there is a fair amount of difference...the jazz "growls" but the p-bass "thumps"

get the squier vintage vibe p bass. they are really good for the money, and sound great for punk style music. add some ernie ball super slinkys with a pick and its an amazing tone.
