I don't see how you are getting ListPlot to work at all, if that's 
really what you did. ListPlot expects a list of y-values or a list of 
points. You could make a table of points and then use ListPlot to plot 
the table. But I think what you really want here is DiscretePlot.

f[x_] := x^2

DiscretePlot[f[x], {x, 0, 0.5, 0.1}, Filling -> False,
  PlotStyle -> PointSize[Medium]]
