Check Engine Light- 1.6L Zetec

HI, I am a proud new owner of a ford focus, the 2004 Zetec 1.6l. I got it second hand with 54k on the odometer.
On day one it ran well, i then changed the oil and embarked on a 800km trip, during the trip i noticed a loss in power and stuttering. I pulled over for a few minutes, when i restarted the car the light was gone but a few minutes later it reappeared. The light remained on for the entire journey with noticable low power
After the journey i got it to the garage and got a misfire code on cylinder 4 plus a fuel level error.
The cylinders were cleaned and power was back, but the check engine light was back in 2 days.
So i changed the plugs and for 7 days i drove with no problem.
Now the check engine light is back with reduced power.
The codes received now are a cylinder 2 misfire and the fuel level error.

This being my first car, i am stressed out. Can someone please help me out in solving the problem
