Today I checked my Hard Drive with HD Tune and it gave warning.
I have provided a picture of the warnings.
Is there reasons to worry?

Hi Arhaan, Welcome to Seven forums.

Drive Calibration Retry Count Number of attempts to calibrate a drive
Indicate problem with motor, bearings or power supply.

Current Pending Sector Count Count of unstable sectors
These pending sectors may be remapped to the spare area.
Critical attribute

I would suggest to scan the drive with hard drive's manufacturer's tool. BTW, which HDD are you using?

You can use ES-Tool. This is for Samsung drives.

I would be very concerned about the Drive Calibration Retry Count. Backup asap and look at getting a new replacement drive.

The Current Pending Sector Count could be a serious problem but not necessarily. Your drive shows a count of 1 and that's not that uncommon. All drives have spare sectors to remap if needed.
