chain adjustment

So I adjusted my chain due to it slipping and now there's a noise I hear on deceleration. And I think I might have screwed up

If your chain was so loose that it was skipping teeth I have a hard time believe it's fixable.

Your chain may be misaligned. Check the adjusters on both sides of the swingarm and make sure the indicators point to the same adjustment mark. It'll get you close enough that you won't trash the chain. If you still have doubts about it, take it to a shop to have it aligned professionally or at least let us know where you are so somebody on here could help you.
