What happens is I took the the CPU for like 5 seconds then put it back in quickly. Its been working fine. Can I just leave it alone?

After you put the paste on, and use your computer for a while, the paste 'cures'. How long did you have the heatsink on before you took it off? If it was JUST after you put it on, no problem, but if the heatsink has been on the cpu for a while, and you removed it, this would 'break the seal' and you'd need to clean off the old, and apply some new.
