Welcome , Some more information about your tank would be helpful.
What size tank?, what type of filter?,how long has tank been running?, are there fish in the tank?., what type of substrate?
Many things can cause cloudy water. Bacteria blooms,alage blooms,poor or undersized filtration or dirty filter material, gravel or sand that perhaps was not rinsed enough,and or excess waste from fish or fish foods.
Often times ,water changes can help but not always ,depending on the cause.
Some causes are natural occurrence in newly set up tanks ,and others require our attention to correct. More information about your tank including numbers of fish and frequency of feedings would be helpful.
Also would help to know exact readings for ammonia,nitrites,and nitrAtes.
