This does the trick but I would guess you have other code as well.  If this is not what you need, then please update the jsbin with the code you do have now.
http://jsbin.com/vusix/1/edit?html,output
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<link href="http://getbootstrap.com/dist/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script src="http://getbootstrap.com/dist/js/bootstrap.js"></script>
  <meta charset="utf-8">

<body>

<div class="container">
  <div class="row">
 
      <div class="col-xs-2  pull-right">
     <select>
       <option>stuff</option>
       <option>stuff</option>
       <option>stuff</option>
     </select>
  </div>
    <div class="col-xs-4 col-sm-2 pull-right"><input type="checkbox"> Checkbox</div>

Thank you.I have a minor change to the above form, just I need a lable (select country) for the dropdown after checkbox.

I have a question in the above code, in the form I have "checkbox" first and then "dropdown" but it seems we have first "div" for dropdown and then for "chekcbox" .
Is there any specific reason to do this way?

You would just add your <label> tag prior to the field

I simply made the output look similar to your image.  When you view the output, you can see that it matches.  The reason why it is reversed in the code is because of the, "pull-right".

You can adjust the "space" by playing with the classes.  Please read through http://getbootstrap.com/css/ and understand how the grid works.  It is responsive and as the viewport changes, so will the displayed output.  The grid is 12 columns so you will see classes like <div class="col-sm-4 col-xs-12">.  The first means if the viewport is small, set the block to 4 columns, if the viewport is extra small, set the block to the full width(12 columns).  It is all very nicely explained.  

Your code has 2 columns.  If you play with the numbers col-xs-3 you can see what best fits your needs.
<div class="col-xs-3  pull-right">
<div class="col-xs-4 col-sm-2 pull-right">

The bold is a result of using the label tag.  You can either create a separate custom style sheet and place it below the the bootstrap css or add <style>tags below the bootstrap css.
At the very least you should set the label to font-weight:normal
http://jsbin.com/vusix/3/
label{font-weight:normal;}
