My Pearson's correlation results show a p-value of 0.9 and correlation value of 0.01 showing little correlation and no significant relationship.

How does this happen?

The correlation correlation shows the amount of linear correlation between the data. If this is 0.01, then there isn't really a linear relationship.

The p-value is the probability that you would have found the correlation value if if were in fact zero (null hypothesis). Generally, if the p-value is lower than 5% (0.05) the correlation coefficient is statistically significant.

There is little evidence that you have a linear relationship in that data.
