They're corroding, but from what I see, they're not leaking. If they haven't leaked yet, it probably isn't worth hauling it just to do that. I think you'll be relatively safe to wait until after Memorial Day... which is only six weeks off or so.
Then again it is your boat, so if it really bothers you that much,
and you have the new seacocks.. go for it. Rick has also got a good point. If you are on the hard, you can take your time and inspect the through-hulls and replace them as necessary, along with the seacocks.
While you're down there, look at the shaft seal, the rudder stock, the zincs. If the through hulls are bronze, scratch the through hulls and see what color they are.. if they're pinkish... replace them, as they're suffering from galvanic corrosion and will fail soon.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
