I don't think it means your HD is failing... at least not yet. I'd keep an eye on it and if the numbers are going up over time then yeah, something is definitely wrong.

Your hard drive is failing, if the numbers increase, replace it.
And you should start making backups immediately.

Also, run a "chkdsk C: /r" on your drive, just in case.

Ugh, annoying. Was saving this money for other things. Hopefully it's simple and chkdsk repairs it.

It won't, it actually might trigger more of them.
the chkdsk will look for other bad sectors.

Basically, your hard drive has bad sectors, it found them while writing a file, the hard drive automatically moves these to different sectors. Others might be damaged but haven't been written to in awhile, chkdsk will find these.
