The AMD retail CPU fan had thermal paste and I place it on top of the CPU, but the wire didn't go the way I wanted it, so after 10 seconds I pulled the fan off the CPU and turned it around 180 degrees. The question is that do i need to reapply thermal paste if I did that?

If it's new then not at all. The only time you need to replace it is if you switch coolers or processors. Or if it burns (not likely). :)
