I get this so much now. Anybody have any ideas why?
I don't know why its so small. Basically it just says that the disc needs to be repaired by running recovery. This has happened a few times just this year.Sorry…but the photo is too small to read the text. But…"red" text when running Disk Utility on an HD is usually not a good sign…and it could mean that the HD is beginning to fail.
But as I mentioned…the text is too small (photo too small) to read to know what messages you are getting.

I don't back up much, maybe once a month since it is a laptop after all and I have it with me everywhere I go. But at least its always up to date. Just did it today.
No that won't be an issue really.
BTW since the drive may be failing I suggest letting Time Machine follow it's regular schedule of backups. Once a month is probably not a good idea. Besides on laptops the current version of Time Machine uses some space on the internal drive when it can't connect to the external drive used for Time Machine backup.
There's no question in my mind that that hard drive is about to die. Check your backups' integrity and get ready to replace the drive (or just save time and replace it now).
I did know abi it 2.5. I did not.know about the 9.5 mm. Thanks.Since you mentioned a 2 TB drive and there happens to be only a single 2 TB drive in manufacture that will fit into your MBP, you do realize that you need a 2.5" drive, not a 3.5" drive? And it needs to be 9.5mm in height? A 15mm drive will not fit....
And yes, buying a smaller SSD drive could be a problem restoring from Time Machine. The replacement drive is going to need to be large enough to restore from TM. If you have 500 GB used space on your current drive that TM is backing up, you are not going to restore that to a 250 GB SSD.
Not sure if im just a victim to the placebo effect but it does seem quicker.
