Go to WD's website and go through their diagnostic stuff and attempt to file an RMA, preferably an Advance RMA so they will send you a replacement disk first (which you can copy the data to using ddrescue or winimage or whatnot). Then send the bad disk back.
As long as you are within the warranty period you should be ok; the disk behavior is definitely not normal.

Did you try dumping the SMART data from the disk drive? can you post it here? (piriform defraggler can dump the SMART data, just be sure not to install any optional toolbars during installation)

In short: Send for an Advance RMA ASAP; Don't play russian roulette with your data!
