What kind of filter do you have on it? did you but any substrate in it? A new aquarium takes about two months to become stable and crystal clear.

Did you wash the gravel? It could just be dust from it. Do you have fish yet?

So you'll need to follow the fish in cycle guide called 'I just learnt about cycling but I already have fish'. The cloudiness could be a bacterial bloom. Common in cycling tanks. It's wont harm your fish o the cycle.

Water changes will help with the cloudiness whilst it cycles fully. Keep up with them and it'll clear up eventually. What fish do you have in there?

The white cloud is called new tank syndrome , it tends to go away after 2weeks if your unlucky enough to get it , alot of it is down to bacteria do a water test to check the amonia levels in the tank (alot of tap water in many places have high amonia levels) do a 20% water change once a week but it should settle down on its own
