Was planning on doing mine purely preventatively at 90k w/ early timing belt change, but from your other post you're at 55k and should be fine.
Who told you it was dirty, a dealer or a quick lube? Just curious, the former is more likely to be accurate while the latter is more likely to try and lighten your wallet.
In any case, it's easy enough to check for yourself, just pull some out of the reservoir with a turkey baster and take a look at it. New bottles of P/S fluid are maybe $5 from the dealer, if you want to compare. It's not the greatest smelling stuff, but I wouldn't pay more than $30 to have someone change it for me.
Edit: I should also say I agree with Stuff. New fluids can't reverse metal damage... so check it for yourself, and keep a close eye on your steering system/feel.
Edit 2: Reservoir should be right next to your wiper fluid. IIRC it has a red cap.
