Need help, possible broken HDD 4 days old

About 3 hours ago I was browsing the internet (didn't download anything or open any websites), I had one tab open, nothing else. All of the sudden my computer freezes, bluescreens, and tells me there is no boot device, I go into bios, check boot order( it was correct) and switch boot options from legacy to uefi>legacy. The computer boots but everything is super laggy and the computer was making a clicking noise also if I moved the cursor too quickly it crashed. I managed to download the western digital drive-checker and everything checked out, after I closed the utility my computer was back to normal with the exception that origin was missing and I had to reinstall it. Please help because I know this shouldnt have happened, and I don't believe in luck.
If it helps AMD 6350- @ 3.5 ghz
Adata pro 1600 mghz ram (mobo automatically underclocked it, it only supports 1333 and 1866 speeds, would also appreciate help on this matter!!!!)
970 gigabyte motherboard-DS3P I believe
500GB WD blue harddrive (the problem I think)
Sapphire R9 270 dual-x
All drivers are current and non-conflicting to the best of my knowledge, GPU is overclocked by 50 MGHZ

    Hi,

    First of all it should be a good idea to back up your important files and documents on that drive to another storage drive or media. In case the failure would happen again there is nothing much to worry about losing your data. Blues screens and lags happen sometimes on day to day use of your PC.
