Run a long self test, if it fails, then the drive is failing.

You might want to backup important data soon afterward.

From what i read before, in the old days you could just re-allocate the bad block but with today's (better drive), bad blocks are a good indication that the drive will fail soon.
I would back-up ASAP, and use that drive for non critical use only.
