Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

• Since in most models $R^2$ can range from $0$ through $1$, $0.004$ is essentially zero, meaning you might as well consider your variables to be uncorrelated. We have a few thousand posts that discuss what a correlation of zero might mean and how it can arise: please visit the links at stats.stackexchange.com/search?q=zero+correlation. – whuber May 28 '17 at 14:52
