Six days ago I started a new batch of muscadine grape wine. I added about 12 lbs of sugar to get a SG reading of 1.100.
I just took another reading today and it reads 0.990, but it's still actively fermenting. Do I need to bring the SG up or is it okay to just transfer to primary?

I assume you mean it's in primary now, and are ready to transfer to secondary. Sure, that's fine. .990 is as low as it will go, but it will start to clear and condition and continue to off-gas.
