Yeah you need to clean it using alcohol or acetone(DO NOT LET IT TOUCH THE PCB WHATEVER YOU DO) and then dry and reapply new thermal compound, arctic silver 5 if you dont have any at hand and have to get stuff.
What is pcb?
Its the stuff they make the boards out of you know the plasticy stuff everything is soldered onto, mind you they arent using it on new stuff anymore its not very environmentally freindly but it reacts with acetone.
Sounds easy enough
Its a good idea to always have extra thermal paste around. Id get another just in case you needed some again.
