try seatools. some bad sectors can not be fixed though.i suggest to backup important data anddo necessary steps o submit for rma(if laptop is in warranty).i have one wd hdd with less than 20 bad sectors (but with higher read error rate) which crawls.install crystaldisk info and you better have a keen eye on "current pending sector count". if it increases rapidly, t is better not to use the hdd or get ready to loose all data.
