I adjusted my handlebars the other day and think. I may have overtightened the bolt on the stem because it occasionally creaks on the trails. How can I prevent it from creaking? I loosened the bolt, but that didn't help

It's most likely the handlebar/stem interface.
1. remove bolts
2. clean bolts, handlebar & stem cap thoroughly. re-grease bolts & reinstall everything. Don't torque bolts too tight, you could crimp the bar.:nono:
