Get a new one, it will save you from grief.

Can you re-use a headgasket YES but it always be a taking a risk

Never reuse a head gasket, even if you assemble and then disassemble an engine without running it. They crush into place to seal when the head is torqued, and will not settle in the same way twice. You might get away with it, but for $15, is it worth the risk?
