Do you always need to replace thermal compound when you remove a heat-sink?

I had to take a look under the heat-sink of my GPU. Thermal compound was not dried up, so I just mushed it back down when I was done inspecting what I had to inspect.

Will this present issues with the thermal conductivity? Should I open it back up, remove the thermal paste, and apply new thermal paste?
