It should safe for you to workout again and the soreness will diminish in time.
However, if your pain prevents you from moving, is accompanied by swelling or inflammation, or causes you concern speak with a medical professional.
Yes, go. It's okay to work through soreness. If you're so despairingly sore that you can't lift your arms, don't go to gymnastics, see a doctor.
