Press F12 at powerup.  Boot to the Dell diagnostics and run an extended hard drive test.

Most likely it's the drive self-test -- meaning the hard drive is toast and will need to be replaced.

Yes, that's the drive, which is the cause.  You'll need a new, 2.5" 9.5 mm or slimmer SATA notebook drive to replace the faulty one.
