I found a correlation between two variables:
Variable A is dichotomous, with values 1 and 2 (for yes/no)
Variable B is continous (score, 0 - 50)
They correlated with each other. However, my sample size is small (N = 25), and Variable A is is distributed rather unevenly. Is it even allowed in this case to perform a Pearson correlation? Do you think I should still report this correlation, or does it seem "spurious" because of the small sample size? Additionally, would it make sense to further investigate this correlation with a t-test (or an analogous non-parametric test), or is that a bad idea because of the small sample size and the uneven groups?
