Please Read! My idle temp on my gpu is increasing! ...fast

I am rather nervous at the moment because my Radeon Powercolor (single fan) 7850 2GB is starting to get really hot! I have an NZXT Phantom 410 case with 5 fans and normally my gpu idle temp is ~30 degrees Celsius to 33 degrees max. As of now (at the time of typing this) it is at a whopping 50 degrees Celsius and my computer has no programs running or anything graphically intensive running in the background. This is terrifying, i cant imagine actually gaming as it would probably get up in the 90's. What i need to know is how do i get it back down to the good old 30's and what are some ways to fix this? This happened last night before i powered off my computer. I noticed my idle temp was 45 degrees (msi afterburner). Should i mess with my fan profiles or speeds? Thank you for the feedback.

    You could turn up the fan speed, see what happens.

    Open your case, look at it. If the fan spinning, not clogged with dust ETC?
