Hi, i live in a fairly new house, was built a year ago.

The seal along the shower cubical that is against the wall / tiles has started to look like its coming a little away from the tiles, the rest looks fine although it does looks thinly put on.

Because most is fine i was wondering can i just go over it all to thicken it a bit while also covering the parts that look like they are coming away slightly?

Or does it all have to come off first?

I'd take the loose stuff off myself or you would be sticking to something that's mostly useless.

If it's a shower too, the extra time will pay off when it comes to water finding its way into the weak bits.

There are very few things that silicone sealant won't adhere to. Silicone sealant is one of them.

Remove all traces of old sealant then apply new.
