How were you cleaning it...?
Anyway, you don't HAVE to get a whole new set. Go down to the guitar shop and ask them to put a new string on for you. Depending on how old the strings are you might be better off getting a new set... What kind you get basically depends on how much you're willing to spend...

it had a lot of dust between the srings... but the strings are about 2 years old....
#5
2 years?!?!?!?!?!?!

...you most definitely should replace them all. it will sound a million times better.

And for the record... You might want to think about changing your strings every 6-8 weeks, although that depends on how much you play... If you're really unsure take your guitar into the shop.
