That depends on how you feel about spoilers, though in all likelihood you've already heard the biggest spoiler Portal has. Portal 2 is a direct sequel of Portal. A couple of the early levels are revisited levels from the first game. It also treats the events of the first game as common knowledge that you should be aware of. That being said there's nothing vital from the first game that you don't pick up as you go along.
If you had asked should I play Portal now that I've played Portal 2, I would say no unless you really enjoyed GLaDOS or you want to hear the ending song. Portal 2 expands on everything from Portal (abilities, plot, even characters). Returning to the first game can feel a bit like that level where all the awesome things from your inventory are looted and you have to play using nothing but the useless wooden sword from the beginning.
Portal is also a lot shorter that Portal 2. It won't take you very long to beat it and move on to Portal 2.
Personally, I enjoyed Portal. It was a fun little game and I really liked Doug Ratman (who doesn't show up much in Portal 2). Also I like doing things in order. I say yes.
Regardless of what you choose, I suggest waiting a bit to get it. It looks like the summer sale is going to happen soon. During the winter sale, I managed to pick up a bundle of both games for under $7.

You should. If you grab a package with both Portal games, you can get it for next to nothing (at least during the sale).

That's right. Portal 2 is better but when you have the chance to get it for less you should take it.

personally I played Portal 2 first with only barely knowing what happens in the first game and it worked too, so it depends on you entirely :) if you can get both games though, do

Buy Portal Bundle during the sales. It's been known to go for only USD 6.30.
The first game is definitely recommended as a warmup to P2, the latter of which is a quantum leap over the first...

I highly recommend it. Portal 2 is significantly better, but both games are fantastic.
