hey, is the replacement screen meant to have adhesive on it already?

No, it does not. Just replaced my screen. The residual adhesive is good enough to keep it on temporarily, but I’m going to a local repair shop to grab something better.

Is there no part for the Google Pixel screen replacement equal to this ?

It’s also best to, if you haven’t already, look at your replacement part to get a feeling of how far you can go with the guitar pick or pry tool. It’s around 1/16th of an inch on the sides so you don’t want to go too far in and damage the display
