Clear coat scratch or something deeper. How to repair?

I scratched the side of my vehicle with a piece of aluminum. Around the scratch there was white powder like substance that I brushed off... it must have been some of the clear coat. It's about 2" long and 1/8" wide scratch. I don't think that it went down to the metal.

I used Meguiars Scratch-X 2.0 and it cleaned it up a little but I still see some white in the scratch (the paint is a midnight blue). How can I repair this? I have OEM touch-up paint pen.

I've seen this and am not sure if the clay is safe to be on the metal/paint, what do you think? http://scratchwizard.net/shop/

I've read about Quixx scratch repair kit as well but wet sanding makes me really nervous.

The scratch is deep but you can feel it when you rub your finger nail over it.
