Sounds like a problem. Back up right away. See if you have a warrantee still in force at the Seagate website. (You'll need the original packing box for RMA.)

Back it up immediately, you could lose valuable data. Then download and run Seatools from Seagate and check the drive against the manufacturer's drive utility.
