Dell Inspiron 3737 Failed Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test

I was running a Dell Hardware Check and it said that i Failed the Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test. I don't really know what that means all I know is that Dell Recommends that I replace my hard Drive.  I am under warranty on this Laptop but I don't really want to replace it unless i absolutely have to. So can someone tell me what it means to fail this test and if I have to replace my Hard Drive? My computer Works fine its a little slow at times but I don't know much so please help. This is what it says its failed too. 

Failed WHD20-SP4

Failed WHD16-572

I am on a Inspiron 3737 Laptop

Run the Dell diagnostics (F12 at powerup) -- if you see an error such as 2000-0142, contact Dell for a replacement drive.
