all of a sudden my laptop thought my filesystem was read only so i restarted my laptop and i had to run checkdisk and i got illegal inodes whatever those where so i kept hitting yes until everything was fixed and then i got something like cannot boot gui so i rebooted and now everything seems worked fine. is this a sign of a dieing harddrive or what?

Likely the case; you may want to back up your personal files and keep a USB disk handy until you can replace the drive. Also, installing aptoncd can be handy, as you can make a CD with the packages you have installed to make reinstalling the OS quicker.
