    Yes dude it is certainly advisable to load sp2 but how you install it matters.Everybody might suggest you slipstream it & perform a clean install but you can update it too with your system in present state.I myself found no problems by updating to sp2 from sp1.There are certain precautions that should be taken care of.You can read some important info regarding measures to be taken here
    If you still feel that upgrading might cause some problems then slipstreaming & performing a clean install is the way for you.All the best. :)
