You can try retorquing but you need to confirm if the leak is from the head gasket.
Any leakages from the valve cover gasket and the distributor can drip done and look like the head gasket is leaking.
If it is from the timing belt side, check the camshaft oil seal.
If retorquing fails, you would have to replace the gasket again. This model seems to have the tendency to leak from there and I would suggest using gasket sealant around the oil pressure hole of the gasket before installation.
