Cloudy doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong, but getting air in finished beer is bad. You introduced bacteria both from the crack in the cane and your "mouth siphoning" whatever that is, and you also increased the potential for oxidation by getting air in it after fermentation.

There is nothing much you can do but try one after a couple of weeks, three is most likely when it will be right. If there is oxidation it will get worse over time so if you sense there is a problem drink them soon and quickly. Maybe share them if they are not too bad and get another batch going.

OK so I guess the only question I have is if I drink this beer will it hurt me?? this is my first brew so I know its not gonna win any awards. But there is no way its getting dumped down the drain, I dont care if it tastes like PBR. So can I drink it???

Nope won't hurt you but it may be oxidized or contaminated.

Translated, this means drink it up quickly as it won't keep as well
