Head Gasket

I just received my new head gaskets and one gasket is slightly damaged. Would this be ok to use?

It's hard to tell the type of "damage" from your photo. Is it only discolored or is it bent or deformed in some way? Discoloration would probably not be significant; bent or deformed might. You could take some photos that accurately describe the situation and send them to Rock Auto. Most sellers don't want to take back gaskets when the packaging has been opened, but Rock Auto has always been fair with me.
At the worst, you might have to buy another head gasket.
