An engaged clutch is when you do NOT have the lever pulled - so essentially your clutch is permanently engaged unless YOU disengage it.
If I take what you wrote and presume you meant "disengage" then you are experiencing clutch drag - clutch drag becomes more noticeable with colder temps (thicker oil) and is pretty normal. BUT - since you replaced the clutch the pack is now thicker and you might need to adjust your cable a little to make up for that since you will likely have more free play and less pull on the clutch after replacing the plates because the clutch pack is thicker that it was. Adjust to get less free play and more pull on the lever - this will give you more spacing between the plates when pulled and should give you less clutch drag.

I also agree with the cold weather, thick oil part. I've had that problem before and there is nothing you can do but warm it up. The clutch drag should decrease to normal levels/go away in a short time.
