I have a smog check coming up and last weekend I took off my HS header setup and put the old exhaust manifold setup back on. I forgot to put any sort of gasket between the exhaust manifold and the pipe, and it's leaking.

I went to buy a gasket for it, and the guy brings me this ring looking thing. Is this what it actually takes? It's been awhile since I took it out, but I thought it would have used a gasket similar to what the header setup uses (with 3 bolt holes).

Here is a pic of what he brought me-- but he only brought one of them. If this is what i need, do I actually need 2?? Or is this the wrong "gasket"?

Yup. If you look closely at the stock setup you'll see an indentation for the rings to sit. When you tighten everything down they crush and fill the gaps. It's not a flat mating surface like the HS setup.
