Yes: It's very common to have soreness 1 - 3 days after a workout, especially if you're just starting to exercise again, or trying a new program. So it should be fine to continue working out. However, you should certainly see a physician if symptoms are severe or persistent.

I am so sore I can barely move from a work out 2 days ago. Should I still go to the gym (to get looser)?

You overdid it.: Let your muscles recover; if you go back too soon, you run the risk of injuring yourself. When you start again, take it a bit easier. You can't get into shape in one day.
