considering that the cloudiness has greatly decreased, I'm leaning more towards new take and bacterial bloom

just checked my water again this morning and still 0ppm ammonia, 0ppm nitrite, and 0ppm nitrate, guess this is gonna take some time for this 2.5 gallon to cycle, at least my water is now 99% crystal clear

Good to hear the water is clearing up. The bacteria bloom was probably caused by a combination of being a new tank, not vacuum the gravel, and being overstocked. Just make sure to keep up with the water changes and vacuum the gravel everytime and you shouldn't have problems with cloudy water again.

should I continue to do daily partial water changes or can I get away with every other day as long as I'm monitoring my levels?

I would just watch your parameters and do water changes when needed but I would do a water change once a week regardless if the parameters are fine.
