    Just had a quick question if someone didn't mind helping me out.

    I had my external hd partitioned and used Time Machine on my mini. I purchased a new mac and transferred all the Time Machine data to the new mac and everything transferred fine.

    Can I know now delete the backups.backupdb folder in my TM partition so I can start a new TM back-up for the new mac?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you can, or you can format the drive entirely with Disk Utility. I suggest the latter option.
