    "We had a pair of male guinea pigs about 2 years of age they live in separate cages. This morning we found one had died. We don’t know why. They were playmates. Now I am concerned about the second one. What should we do and what should we watch for?"

    If the dead one didn’t exhibit any symptoms of illness then it is unlikely that the remaining one will be contaminated so you really shouldn’t have anything to ‘do’ per se.
    These pigs don’t really live that long so this was, in all probability, the natural conclusion to his life.
    If you think the remaining pig is lonely by all means get him a new playmate. If he is not neutered then be sure the new playmate is male unless you want a litter.
