In my Livescript called test.mlx, I have variables
days
temperatures
I now want to write a plot
plot(days, temperatures)
But I want to write it as a separate m file
Then, what I did is to write a function m file called plot1.m
function plot1(series1, series2)
plot(series1, series2)
end
Then I put plot1.m in the same directory with test.mlx and modifed test.mlx as
days;
temperatures;
plot_test(days,temperatures)
But it does not seem to work.

Do not get anything. The function runs on the command line to draw a plot.

If the name of the main function in a function file and the name of the function file itself are different, MATLAB will know the function by the file name not the function name. So if as you stated you have a file plot1.m containing the text:
function plot_test(series1, series2)
plot(series1, series2)
end
you'll need to call it as plot1(series1, series2). See the Note on this documentation page. [The rule is slightly different for functions in a script file, as also stated in that Note.]

The original text of the question was like this
Then, what I did is to write a function m file called plot1.m
function plot1(series1, series2)
plot(series1, series2)
end
I guess OP was making some other mistake.
