I have these stamps with heavily discolored gum on stamps. Is it safe to put these into my album, or should avoid that? I fear this is some kind of mold that will spread. On the faces no discoloration can be seen, it is only on the back, this yellowish brownish color.

Discolored gum is not uncommon on older issues. Not generally anything to be worried about if the paper itself is sound.
