If you're worried, replace it. You're correct that thermal paste would be of no use; the gap (when assembled) is much too large.

What I can't tell you is where to get it, particularly in your home country. In the USA, it's not often found at retail. Electronics distributors (like www.digikey.com) may have hundreds of types available; you'd have to find one that matches the pads in your notebook. Such sellers may also have minimum order requirements.

The last time I needed a pad replacement, I found a good-enough match at a dealer in PC coolers. I needed the pad to restore the stock heat sink to a graphics card: the GPU used thermal paste, but the RAM chips used pads. Worked out fine.
