non-contiguous is the linux version of saying that you have some fragmentation.
Now, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, by my system, every once in a while does the exact same thing, and I get the same errors, and I haven't had a single problem.... so far.
So, for now, I would say your computer is probably taking care of itself (at least, that is what mine seems to be doing)... because if it reboots itself and it comes up, it's probably fine.
I seem to recall that it's just giving you some information - almost like the machine is talking to itself.
I hope this helps and doesn't hinder!

As I've said before, the only case where ext3/XFS get fragmented is when you fill the disk up to the brim.
