If it's a cloudy, grayish white, it's tiny air bubbles. A pool takes an enormous amount of water, and the underground springs that feed your well are filling up the reserve at a pretty fast rate. Often this causes tiny air bubbles in the water for quite awhile! To be sure, take some of the toilet water and put it in a clear glass and let it sit for a short time. If the cloudiness dissappears, it's air, and nothing to worry about. If it only happens some days and not others, I'm pretty sure it's air, and in a toilet bowl it would look a darker shade of grey than any other water source in your home.
