Welcome to AA. 1st As everyone else said you must first cycle the tank and 2nd did you clean the gravel before you put it in the tank because the tank shouldn't be ridiculously cloudy nor will it be crystal clear until after the tank has cycled.
Did you buy the fish and tank from the same people? If so find a new fish store.

Welcome to AA. read up on cycling. discus like the heat and clean water. might want to start with a little more hardy fish until you get the hang of it. good luck.
