Thanks for the query.
Brief answer....cloudy urine can be just normal or it may mean some other serious problem.
Detailed answer....
The presence of whitish cloudy urine may mean a perfectly normal reason like passing of phosphates in urine due to consumtion of large amount of milk or it may mean....
Infections of kidneys ( pyelonephritis )
Bladder infections.
Prostate infections
Passing of proteins in urine
Sexually transmitted disease  like gonorrhoea
Passing of small amount of blood can also give rise to cloudy appearance etc.
What you require is proper urine microscopy and chemistry done to know the basic cause and then explore it.

As far as weight loss is concerned,the most likely cause in you seems to be due to your medications specially metformin while lisinopril and diuretics can also contribute to weight loss.However this weight loss should not be dismissed and ideally it should be discussed and investigated by your doctor.
Consult your doctor and get yourself examined properly.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
