Marie - Pot them up. Don't leave them in the water. They might be non-viable, but I'd still give them a shot!

I was going to ask how long you left them in water, it could be that the seeds took in the moisture too fast, I've had some turn into goo too, but usually they are left in too long, I'm beginning to think that 6-12 hours is better than 24 hours.. I usually soak overnight.

I usually soak over night too but maybe need to go down more.
