Hi,

I am generally using my laptop with plug in and I don't know if it correct and healthy way to use it. I use msi center to charge it until 60 percent. But I want to ask you that should it keep with plug in after 60 percent or should I take the charging cable off when it reachs 60 percent?

The over-charging protection mechanism will stop charging when the battery reaches 100% by default.
And you can define different levels of the maximum charging level in MSI center as attached.
So you don't need to unplug the charger when it's fully charged/ or reaches the maximum charging level you defined.

Well it all depends what you use it for, now that we have the presets for charging the laptop it simplifies things, but again it depends what you use your laptop for.
My PS63 8RDS is used mainly for personal finances/browsing/travel/light gaming, so I always charge it to 100% and then drain it to 10-15%(except when gaming I have it on charge).
My GS65 9SD I mainly game on it and have it on charge when I do, so I charge it only to 60%, then unplug when not in use.
My GE72 6QF I use for gaming/movies/streaming via HDMI to an external screen so I cycle from 90-100% down to 10-15% and vice versa, on a regular basis. (living room)
My GL62M 7RDX I use for gaming/movies/streaming via HDMI to an external screen so I cycle from 90-100% down to 10-15% and vice versa, on a regular basis. (basement)
My P65 8RF I mainly use for working at home, but I also do some video encoding/editing, with occasional gaming, so I cycle from 100% down to 10-15% and vice versa, I then leave it at between 30-60% if unused for an extended amount of time unplugged of course.
