  1. I would backup the important data ASAP, then download the specific HDD manufacturer test program -- such as WD Data Lifeguard for Windows, Seagate SeaTools, or whatever depending on the HDD brand and run the extended tests to determine the viability of the drive.

    Those SMART values are some of the more important in predicting failure.

    Welcome to the community, @Karan_23!

    I totally agree with everything that @RealBeast mentioned. Back up all your important files from the HDD somewhere else immediately to avoid the potential data loss. Afterwards, it's save to proceed with the HDD testing. If the drive doesn't pass the tests properly from the brand-specific diagnostic tools, you should definitely check the warranty on your laptop (if the HDD was pre-installed). If the notebook is still covered, you should contact the manufacturer and let them know of this hardware error. You should be able to get the HDD replaced through the OEM customer support/repair services.

    Hope this helps you. Best of luck!
