You're probably correct. The haziness should go away very shortly.

How long did you cycle it? How did you cycle it? What were the results of your test? What kind of test kit?

A caution on your combination of fish: the blue gourami should be OK if they are a pair (male/female) or two females [read more in the profile, click shaded name]. But the tetra might be trouble. This species is known to fin nip, and the flowing fins of any gourami, plus its slow sedate nature, will be tempting to the tetra. Read more in the profile, click the shaded name Black Widow Tetra [same fish, common names vary].
