I turned on my computer this morning and it said my computer couldn't start and it began a startup repair thing. The startup repair thing didn't find any problems and it shut down my computer. I turned my computer back on and it started up normally.

Is this an indication my hard drive is going bad?

Maybe. If it happens often, you should check with an expert.

I've had this happen to my computer a couple before. Once it was a precursor to some hardware/software issues, and the other time or two it seemed to just be a glitch. Keep an eye out for any suspicious or unusual behavior. If nothing else happens you should be fine, but otherwise check with someone who can physically examine it. And whatever you do, do not go to Geek Squad. They may be able to fix it, but it will cost 5 times the amount anyone else will charge.
