Replacing outlet with GFI outlet

I want to replace a regular outlet with a GFI outlet.

The old outlet is a double one. (2 outlets side by side)
This is the first outlet on the circuit. It's sorta under a cabinet, back in a corner, and somewhat inaccessable; so I would like to add one more outlet to the circuit.
The double box would then have 1 incoming cable (set of wires) but 2 outgoing cables (sets of wires).

Can I install a GFI in one side of this double box and use the other half of the box as a junction box?

I understood very little of what you said, but I think the answer to your question is yes.
