Your bike has an automatic adjusting cam chain tensioner. No adjustment needed.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

there is 2 nylon guides that pick up the slack for the chain you can adjust the guides to tighten the chain if its makling a bit of noise

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.
