SMART short test is for hard drives. If you are still able to boot to windows then i would recommend to backup all important data asap. Smart test indicates that there are some issues with the hard drive and it may fail in the future. System may still continue work for many more months without any problems but make sure you backup your data regularly.
Here is a link that will tell you more about SMART tests.

Time to replace the hard drive. You can use a retail SATA hdd to replace the 500GB hdd you have. Hope you have burned your Recovery Disk set?
