was this an expirement you devised yoruself? if so, it shouldn't be a problem as you investigating a relationiship with two variables. if this however is a known relationship and there should be association, it is best to redo the experiment.

No thats alright, you can now discuss how to improve your study if you were to redo it. Most psychology experiments verify the null hypothesis

It should be fine as long as you talk about reasons that it happened this way in your discussion. All they care about is if you did the experiment correctly, you can't know for certain how participants will react

That's ok. It's the discussion and how you justify this that will reward marks. My teacher showed us loads of experiment that "failed" but sill got 6/7 because of how they justified his.
