I have been applying clindamycin phosphate gel USP and microspheres adapalene gel for the pimples and scars on my face since a long time. Is that fine?

In brief: Good start

It will not touch the scars, and if you do not have full relief, add topical benzoyl peroxide, a systemic antibiotic, or conisder one of the big guns that only a dermatologist can prescribe.
If you acne scars are relatively mild, consider keeping them -- several hollywood male leads have done this to "look tough." glad you are getting treated.
