Hey. The therm I bought tonight is reading 10 degrees cooler than the therm that came with the bator. Should I go ahead and move the temp up? This is the end of day 2.

You need to calibrate your thermometers. I would not trust the thermometer that came with the incubator. If you hold just the glass part, it slides easily up and down which moves the calibration marks a lot. You can even do a spot check with a regular digital thermometer like people use. I use one from time to time as a double check. I simply insert the thermometer into the vent hole and press the button.
