@ksaimouli
Please check your work.
I think you misapplied the Midpoint Formula as mentioned by @zhiyuan3yu5

Let's take a look at the Midpoint Formula.
It is attached in a file.

Algebraically, the Midpoint Formula would work as follows:
[ ( 4 + (-6) ) / 2 , (-3 + 2) / 2 ] and simplify to get the midpoint coordinates.
To help remember the formula, think of it as the average of the x-coordinates and the average of the y-coordinates of the endpoints.
