Failing Mac Pro HDD

Seems like my primary hard drive on my Mac Pro is about to fail. Better go buy a replacement one tomorrow, it is much easier to replace a hard drive BEFORE it fails even though I have a time machine backup. This is why I believe it is failing...

Seeing that this drive has a run time of 19479 hours (or 2.2 years of continuous 24/7 operation) it is not unsurprising.
