what should be the distance/gap between the nozzle and the bed plate?  should they be almost in contact or should there be any distance?

There should be a little distance about 0.15mm. If you use a sheet of paper this is usually enough. It also doesn't matter if it is 0.15 or 0.18 or whatever. You first layer should look good and should adhere to the plate.

 

But use a sheet of paper and level the nozzle in a way that you feel a little resistance (maybe a bit more then little) on the paper when you move the sheet. It is hard to explain, but you will get a feeling for that. If the first layer don't stick well, you have to level nearer to the plate.
