I was a little clumsy installing my new cpu and forgot to clean of my hands when I got some thermal paste in the cpu socket. Luckily it is only in two pin slots granted not that much, however I am still worried it might hurt something in my system. Am I over reacting or do I need to clean it out?

You could, but again it's simply not a problem so I wouldn't bother with it too much.

Sometimes, we simply have to suppress our OCD tendencies. Cleaning systems is probably the #1 cause of breaking things, I have observed.
Thanks for quelling my anxiety. I have it up and running now
