So I accidentally touched thermal paste on the heatsink...

I recently got an i5-3570k and upon opening my finger made contact with the the corner of the thermal paste on the heatsink. You can see a minuscule fingerprint, and none got rubbed off or smeared. Should I clean it off and replace, or will it be ok? Thanks!
