So I did a water change yesterday and today the tank looks a bit cloudy. Is this normal and anything to worry about?

It should settle ok ,
If not give the sponges a rinse out that will help .

Yes, buy after another weekly water change it's gone cloudy again. I get my salt water from the local fish shop

Cloudy water is usually a bacterial bloom, it can also be caused by too much disturbance if the substrate where all the good bacteria are working away. This would normally clear in 24 hours via the skimmer. How long has your tank been running?
