SMART Readings Just Said "Bad Sectors" for "Current Pending Sectors" for 2.5" HGST 500GB HDD 7,200RPM. Should I Look at Ordering a Replacement?

Or it fair to assume it's will normally functions generally speaking if this is the only thing it's complaining about? > > I am also doing a extended SMART test on it right now as well.
