Hypothesis testing

The following hypothesis are given:

Ho: p less or equal to 0
H1: p >0

A random sample of 12 observations indicated a correlation of .32 Can we conclude that the correlation in the population is greater than 0? Use the .05 significance level.

Ho is rejected if t> 1.714
t= .32SQRT 32-5/SQRT 1-(.32)^=?

I don't know what to do beyond this.
