So i decided to take off the back plate off my fender 70's strat and it had 4 springs instead of the usual 3. I bought it used. Does this mean the gauge of my strings should change?

it just means the previous owner used 4 springs to keep the bridge level.
some people like the bridge a little raised, a looser trem.
some like the tuning stability an extra spring can give.
