    I mean 6000 impressions and only 100 clicks is a terrible CTR, I've never seen such low CTR before, that's like 2% CTR

    Without knowing the average position, its hard to judge the CTR. If you are ranked towards the bottom of the page, a 2% CTR might be expected.

    Also, I've noticed that Google also counts the impressions when an image from your website is shown. The position for the image is often close to 1, but the CTR for an image is really poor. This could be the case with your keyword too.
