it's recommended (and most likely mandatory) to have some short of proof based course (even be it just an introductory course) before taking Abstract Algebra.

for basic (first course) in abstract algebra, you'll need following:

- mathematical induction (along with proof by contradiction)

- basic properties of integers: well ordering principle, division algorithm, notion of gcd, fundamental theorem of arithmetic

- understanding of

- modular mathematics

- equivalence relations (along with partition)

- functions/mapping

if you are not familiar with 1/2 of the listed above, take a introductory proof based course first.
