Clearing a code without fixing the problem is never a good idea. You should diagnose your problems based on the codes, then after repairs, warning lights will go off within a few cold restarts. While working on the car, you might have blown a fuse. You might have shorted wiring. You might now have another problem yet to be diagnosed.

I had already changed the spark plug and coil pack before I clear the code


You had a misfire and replaced the coil & plug. But was it the coil or plug that caused the misfire? A computer code can tell you what's happening, but can't tell you why. That what mechanics do; they diagnose the entire system to find the actual fault.
