I'm not sure I understand the question. When you use set.seed, it will 
have effect in all calls to the random number generator following it. So 
the value for y is also fixed.
As for your code, you don't need the second set.seed. And though it is 
not syntatically incorrect, the way you are coding it is not very usual. 
Try instead

x <- 10*runif(10)

y <- rnorm(10)

y <- rnorm(10)  #different y

Hope this helps,
