You can't create another partition because the rules state that:

=> Only 3 primary partitions can be created if there exists an extended partition.
=> 4 primary partitions can be created if you don't have an extended partition.


As your screenie shows, you already have 3 primary & 1 extended partition.
You should have created 1 primary partition and 1 extended partition. then you could have had logical drives in that extended partition.

VERY CORRECT

how can i merge the unallocated space into the extended partition?

Download Gparted live cd from
http://gparted.sourceforge.net

Boot from it

First increase the size of your extended partition and click Apply

After that resize the first logical partition int he extended partition
