Yea it's normal. Do a water change but don't disturb the sand.

The return line is where it sprays back into the tank.

I would just do a water change. Clarifies are more harm than good IMO. If I were you I would also raise your return line to about 3" below the surface that way it agitates the surface of your water.

Having hazy water is normal only if you didn't clean the sand well enough before putting it the tank. If the sand is clean the water will be crystal clear from the start.
