Does the pureness of products or reactants affect equilibrium constant?

The only thing that effects the equilibrium coefficient is a change in temperature

I think in lecture a "pure" substance was described as that in a liquid or solid state. When calculating the equilibrium constant, solids nor liquids are included in the formula.

^^ I agree with this statement. When calculating K, look at the products and reactants that are either in the gas or aqueous phase. Pure solids or liquids shouldn't be used in the K expression or calculations.
