    That's the HD letting you know a failure is imminent. I suggest copying

    everything you want tp keep onto a Flash Drive or External HD and

    then using it as little as possible until you can get a replacement.

    Also, most HD problems cannot be repaired. Or, I should say most problems with the platters cannot be repaired.
