    You probably don't need to worry about it.

    You'd need to recompile your kernel and all your programs. Just run something in VirtualBox; it'll save you some trouble.

    Run
    file .#firsh to find what type of file that is.

    Edit:

    To Elaborate on what Rocket2DMn said, the easiest way to fsck your root filesystem would be to run
    sudo touch /forcefsck and reboot.
