I'm an Indian working in the U.S. on H1-. When I went to

I'm an Indian working in the U.S. on H1-B. When I went to India last time, I went to renew my soon-to-expire (in Feb 2017) H1-B. I was eligible for drop box and so I dropped off my documents at the office.When I got the passport back, I found out that my visa was denied because my passport was slightly damaged. They had given me a blue slip (221g) saying that my passport had to be replaced.I still travelled to the U.S. despite the denied visa in December as I still had my old visa valid until Feb 2017.Recently, I got a new I-797. My old one that I applied with and got 221g was valid only until May 2017.Now, I plan to go back to India next month. I don't know if I should1) Ignore the blue slip and make a new DS160 and submit a new application? Am I allowed to do this? In this case, I can even go to a consulate in Canada? Or2) Use the blue slip and submit both my new passport and the new I-797?I prefer doing a new DS160 and doing the interview instead of dropping off my documents just because I can explain in case they had any questions and also because I have a new I-797. Is it OK to do this?Please let me know what I should do.
