WHY ARE WE YELLING AT EACH OTHER :p

In answer to your question it sounds fine. (I assume you just used the supplied SAFwheat K-97) Being a wheat it will generally be cloudy, due to increased protein in suspension over a barley based brew. Also if it was your first post ferment reading it may have had some sediment stuck in the tap that it spat out making it apear more cloudy, but cloudy with this beer is fine.

Cheers

A wheat beer is supposed to be cloudy unless it is filtered, that is part of the mystic of brewing wheat beers.
If it wasn't cloudy, then I would be worried. You will have a lovely taste and aroma of the yeast with the spicy tartish taste of the wheat, Yummm.

Cheers
