Sounds normal to me. There is probably alot of moisture built up inside of it from sitting on my parts car, then sitting before installed on your car.

It should clear up after some driving around.

I checked my service records and this gasket was replaced about 6 months ago when I had my precats/main cat replaced under the emissions warranty. Do you guys think I really need to replace it or should I just try and reinstall the exhaust? I did bolt it up only after mounting it on all the hangers, which could be pushing it to one side.

you should be ok to reuse it if it is less then 6 months old as long as it is intact, if it isn't sealing well you will know ...
