Seek Error Rate Fix

For the past few weeks my 2 tb hard drive's seek error rate (by crystaldisk) is going up and low. I'm not a tech geek so I don't know about the problem but is there any way to fix seek error rate like by installing windows or do I need to replace my Hard drive. I will appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hi Souravi785,

Do you know how to run SMART test, & Short test on your drive? If either or both fail, it's time you do a system image backup and install another drive ASAP!
Here's a link to your drive manufacture instructions followed by link to WD test tool:
