Can I send BTC to 2 addresses in one transaction or do I have to create 2 transactions?

The Bitcoin protocol allows for sending BTC to as many addresses as you like in a single transaction.  Unfortunately, many Bitcoin wallets do not yet support sending to more than one address.  The framework is there to allow it, but the software you are using for your wallet must support it as well in order for you to use it.

      If your bitcoins are in limbo, it is likely the transaction fee you paid was not high enough for the transaction to be mined. You’ll need to wait for a few days, and depending on what software you use for your wallet, the transaction may disappear from your wallet so you can try sending it again.

      Another technique used for confirming stuck transactions is that of Child Pays For Parent (CPFP). Find out what the change address is for the transaction you just sent and create a new transaction that uses some of those change address funds. Make sure the fee is about double the going rate (check https://bitcoinfees.21.co/ for current fee rates), and your two transactions should confirm in no time.
