blue screen with bird - bad hard drive?


I have an Inspiron 1545 with windows 7.  I hadn't used it in about 3 months and when I used it again, it went to a blue screen with a bird on a branch.  I sometimes hear the hard drive scratching, but not all of the time.  I'm assuming this blue screen is telling me my hard drive went?  Am I right on that?  Sorry, kind of a novice with this.  I'm so mad because I was going to take all my pics off and put them on an external hard drive and now this.....ugh! 


Thanks for any help!
