I don't think there's really an ETA or anything of how long your hard drive has until it is not operational. I mean, it could be today, a few days, next week or next month. The best thing to do is to try to back up anything important and get your hard drive replaced as soon as you can, or purchase a new hard drive now, so that way you're ready to replace the "dying" one to limit your downtime.
