fsck and non-contiguous

Hi all.....
You know how every so often while booting debian, fsck will run?
well, last week I noticed that after it ran, it said .3% non contiguous.
Today it ran and it said .6% non contiguous.
My question is.. why diesn't fsck fix the non contiguous errors it finds?

about a month ago my hard drive failed. before it failed it was dojng this
same thing. when debian wouldn't boot any longer, I ran fsck manually and
it didn't seem to work.. Not fsck's fault, the hard drive is completely bad.
Could this be a sign of another hard drive failure? (it's a different drive, I
tossed the old one) or should I just run fsck as root and fix the non contiguous errors?
