"New" battery spilled its guts

I was told six months ago that my car's battery was getting weak, so I bought a new one "just in case," but kept using the old one in the vehicle. I just took a look and saw that the new one (still unused) had tipped over and spilled a good bit of its liquid contents.

At this point do I buy some battery acid at a car parts store and add it to the battery? Do I proportion in some distilled water? Should I presume I need to then put it on a charger? Have I shortened its useful life in the process?
