Hello everybody. Today I replaced crankset completely (the one that is inside with bearings). My Crankset little bit lose. Its invisible when riding, but when you shake one pedal, the displacement is about of the size of this dot > .
Is it good or bad?

It needs an adjustment. I'd need to know/see the pedal to tell you how to do this. But it's not rocket-science.

Simple mountain bike crank caps, with a line on top for the tool to unscrew it. I just got it back from bike store, it was adjusted and not lose. Should I just tight it up a little more?

You need to identify if the crank arm is loose or the bottom bracket is loose. When the crank arm moves that little bit, does the crank arm on the other side move with it? If so, it is a BB issue. If not, then you need to tighten the crank arm screw/bolt behind the cap. Get it very tight. Riding with the crank fixing bolt/nut loose can ruin your crank arm.

Tnx for help, it was about crank cap. 0% lose now
Crank caps are meaningless. They are often missing on older bikes. Usually just a cheesy piece of plastic to hide the spindle bolt.
