If you believe that your manager violated your confidential discussion that you had with him or her, you should have a face to face meeting about the subject in an attempt to resolve the issue and prevent such from happening again. Follow up with the meeting with an e mail to the manager confirming the meeting's discussion.

If that does not resolve the problem, then a meeting with your company's human resources department seems in order.
