Having a boot issue

Hello guys i am new here, got recommend by a friend I am having a issue with my computer it doesn't always happen and usually a restart by passes it but every now and then I get this error messages

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key

usually i just press the reset button and it by passes it on the second time it loads, any ideas what it is and what could possibly be causing it...I am dreading its my hard drive dying, but I hope not.

I have checked my event viewer to see maybe if that would tell me my issue and this error always comes up Kernel-EventTracing - saying their was a error in the homegroup log not sure if that means anything

I also ran a diagnostic on the hard drive and this is what came up
