what do i do? did my hard drive crash?

when I turn my pc on, it gets me to the login screen. but the text and many elements are missing like icons.sometimes the guest account has a password but i never put one. i ran diagnostics and found harddrive problems. startup repair doesnt work and no system restores because it was relatively new so i never made one. any suggestions or help would be appreciated
