it should do this automatically, if you are running with compiz or "desktop effects" running it may get a bit confused and open a new window.

as a solution of sorts if you drag the file from the file browser/desktop to the gedit window instead of double clicking on the file, it should load in a new gedit tab.

start gedit like this:
gedit %U --new-window
gedit --new-window
