Default External HDD error messages - drive failing?

Recently whenever I use my external USB hard drive on OpenBSD, I've been getting messages like "Input/Output error" whenever I copy files from it to my laptop. Also when I tried to mount it I get the error "No medium found" and "Device busy" or something like that. The drive is formatted in OpenBSD partition. Does this mean the drive is failing and I should back it up ASAP?
