MySQL Error When Starting

MySQL database is installed and appears to be working however when I restart the MySQL service:

/etc/init.d/mysql restart
Now when I restart MySQL on my server, I am seeing the following:

Starting MySQL database server: mysqld.
Checking for corrupt, not cleanly closed and upgrade needing tables..
What does this exactly mean? I am not efficient enough with MySQL to understand if this is a generic message or
if I need to do something to fix this.

It's just checking, it's not saying it found anything.
