Adjusted my valves today

I have to admit I am quite proud of myself. The engine was ratling quite bad for the last few weeks and I found that the intake valve on Cyl. No. 3 had about .35MM of clearance. After adjusting it back to .15MM the rattling is gone and everything look OK. Should I worry about it ? The lock nut wasn't loose or anything but the retaining clip that seem to hold everything in place was out of its groove .
