Question new plants/ cloudy water?

hello,
I just bought some micro swords plants and another foreground plant, can't remember the name but now that I've added them and did a water change, my water seems to have gotten a lil cloudy?
any ideas why or how to clean the cloudyness?

Is it a milky color? Sounds like it may be a bacteria bloom & those usually clear up within a week or two with normal water changes.

it didn't look milky cloudy yesterday. it just didn't look clear as usual. it looked like dusty a lil. ill do a 25% water change today and see if that helps.
thanks

It should clear up. I've had it before & I was doing 50%+ water changes, it took a few of them to get to go away.
