I would definitely at least drain and refill.  Run it long enough to get hot
& check the oil's appearance again.  If it still looks funky, drain & refill

I don't know enough about what's inside a 58 MF to know if flushing with
solvent would be safe or not, but the above procedure is bound to be safe
and gear oil isn't all that expensive.
