What does the label on that "switch" say? I'm guessing it's actually a SWM Splitter. If so, then yes, you can run another RG6 coax cable to your 3rd bedroom to use with one of the Genie Clients.

If it were truly a switch (unlikely), it would have at least 12 ports on it.

And be sure to use the terminator that you removed for the new coax to replace at the unused coax inside. . . use a coax 'bullett' - screw terminals on each end.
SWiM splitters come in 2, 4 or 8 ports - it's better to use the smallest possible - and have a green label on them.
