My Independent variable is binary (yes/no) and dependent variable is continuous with no normal distribution. I have many other covariates both categorical and continuous.

Will anyone help me with this? What can I do further to adjust these covariates?
I am recently working on my PhD data. My dependent variable is an ordinal variable (school performance with 4 categories) and independent variable is bullying, also some covariates as age, gender and marital status of parents. I somehow figure out how to conduct this analysis in SPSS but I am not quite sure what to report in my findings. Also I am struggling with what and how to interpret? How to put those finding in the result table.
Is there any expertise who have previously applied this analysis in their work? I would be very thankful if you have some research papers to share regarding this matter.
I know that if the residuals are normally distributed on both sides of the peak, then they are considered to be normally distributed.
In my case, if you see the plots, can residuals be considered normally distributed? Can i apply linear regression on them?
Looking for help,
