Yes, the baby can get a birth certificate and Malaysian citizenship ( if you are a Malaysian citizen ).
Make sure that you give birth in a hospital and get the hospital birth card.
You need this card when register the baby for the birth certificate.
In the father section, you can put "Tiada Maklumat Bapa".

It is easier to get the birth certificate and citizenship for the baby if the father section is left blank.
( tiada maklumat bapa )

4. If I register the baby in Malaysia and the father is a foreigner, will the baby become a Malaysia citizen or obtain the citizenship of the father? Or dual citizenship? 
Settle the Malaysian citizenship first, other citizenship later.

5. If the mother is not married and has baby, what is the marital status for the mother? Is she still considered single or otherwise?  
Still single.

6. Will the baby face any problem in the future for example study and anything else because the parents of the baby are not married?
Once the kid get the Birth Certificate which says "Warganegara", (citizen )
there will be no problems to get MyKid, Mykad and schooling later.

As a Malaysian Muslim you should know what are Shariah Laws and current policies on Malaysian Islamic treatment on unwed mothers. If you register yourself as single parent, the Religious Dept in Government Hospitals will take away your newborn and put the newborn in a Islamic Welfare Adoption Center. You will be send to a halfway house for re-education on Islamic Principles. Do check with SIS on this issue (Sisters In Islam).
