For the laptop... try blowing out any dust or blockage. Check that the fan, if you have one, is working and there is adequate airflow.
If cleaning out the laptop does not give the desired results; you may want to test it in your desktop, where it can breath, to see if the temps do decrease.

Also, what was the ambient temp where you are located during the laptop's test?

As for the HDD in the PC (desktop, I am guessing).
Backup you data, now.
Get a replacement and/or RMA the HDD, if still under warranty.
It could go for years or die on you in a second; depends on what caused the errors.
You can use some monitoring software (such as your HD Tune Pro) to see if the errors increase.

You need to back up, now, any data you want to keep.
Run a check disk on the drive.
Check windows error logs to see if Windows is having any troubles with the drive or associated systems.
Try changing your data cable.
Run the DFT (Drive Fitness Test) from HGST (Hitachi).

Below is a quote from a troubleshooting guide at HGST(hitachi):
My drive has bad sectors. Do I need to replace it?
A bad sector occurs when the operating system or utility is unable to access a sector on a
drive. However, it does not necessarily mean that the drive is bad. In fact, the sector may
not be physically damaged at all. For example, bad cabling can result in Cyclic
Redundancy Check (CRC) errors which can be reported as bad sectors when in fact it is a
communication error. Viruses can also corrupt data which can cause read errors as well.
We have a utility called Drive Fitness Test (DFT) that is specifically designed to test the
integrity of Hitachi Global Storage Technologies hard drives. We recommend running the
advanced test as it performs a complete test of the drive. This utility should help to
determine whether your drive has a physical problem or if the problem is more of a
software related issue.
But, my guess is the drive is starting to fail. You might want to think about getting a replacement as soon as possible.
