Doesn't hurt to have either. Stock heatsinks do come with paste on them but it's closer to like thermal tape. I always wipe it off and replace it.

Just wipe it off with a dry paper towel or what?

Take the majority of it off with a dry paper towel, then use a q-tip and 90+% isopropyl alcohol to make a clean surface.
