Harddrive failure?

So my wife booted her pc up this morning, everything powered on normally but monitor stayed black. Did all the troubleshooting I know, and finally was able to get into the bios(Asrock 970 extreme 3 UEFI) in the boot area, it didn't show the harddrive like it normally does. Did a manual power down of system, this time it booted to a screen that said "Harddisk read error" Cntrl alt delete to continue. Did this a couple of times, and finally it booted normally.

Is this a sign of the HDD going gills up on me? if so are there any tests I can do to make completely sure that it is before I fork out money to get a new one.

Thank you in advance.
