Question about Singer Featherweight 132Q Mechanical Sewing Machine
The problem is, your needle so short, adjust your needle bar down, so that the thread of your bobbin will come out.

I think you mean the shuttle is not picking up the top thread. There are many reasons why this can happen. The best way to find out which is to leave the cover off the bobbin compartment and turn the machine slowly by hand while watching things happen for a few cycles - best to have a piece of material in place as well (but not in your line of sight).
As the needle begins to rise, the top thread should form a loop for the shuttle to pick up. If no loop forms, the needle could be too fat for the thread, the thread could be sticking to the needle, the pick-up arm could be out of time (unlikely), or the thread tension could be wrong (or the machine not threaded correctly).
If a loop forms, but the shuttle does not pick up up, the needle could be bent (take it off and roll it on a flat surface),or in backwards (loop forming opposite to shuttle), or the material (or your manner of feeding it) causing the needle to be deflected away from the shuttle. On some machines, it is also possible to loosen a clamp and move the shuttle closer to the needle, but obviously that is a last resort (unless it has come loose or been forced away).
There are other possibilities, but usually it's the simplest thing. Try changing the needle?
