Hops floating in my beer

I make my first batch of all gain two weeks age. I transferred it to a secondary carboy yesterday and there are floaty things in it and after 24hs they are not settling. What do I do? I usually make bown ales ported so I most likely didn’t notice them before this is an abbey ale so it is much lighter.
When putting the hops in I put them in cheese cloth bags but this time one busted open in the boil. Should I have filtered it out right away? Does putting hop in bags alter or rather lessen the taste? Thanks V

Cold crash for a few days before you bottle or keg. Also try adding gelatin a week prior to cold crashing (see: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=64190 ). The combination should make your beer very clear.
