Your Eb clarinet part is in the wrong key because the transposition is not set correctly - it's set to an octave rather than a minor third. Did you import this from MusicXML, or add it as another instrument then just change the name and sound? If you go to Staff/Part Properties and use Change Instrument, it will fix this for you, or you can change the transposition manually. If you already entered notes at written pitch, you may have already notice they sound wrong, so you may need to actually transpose the notes as well.

When you added the staff for the Eb clarinet, then, you must have selected some instrument other than Eb clarinet and then simply changed the name. Next time, be sure to actually select the correct instrument when you add it, otherwise the transposition will be incorrect as it is here.
