I don't know why your original question was deleted, but there's enough information in this one to give you an answer. If the number of bad sectors is increasing every day, I'm start off by assuming it's a hardware issue. Back up any data you need to keep, take the laptop back to the store and see if you can get the drive replaced under warranty. (Since you dropped something on it, they may claim that it's not covered, but there's no harm in asking.) If not, replace the drive anyway, install Fedora and restore that data. If that's not practical at the moment (I understand that finances can be a problem.) take the backup, store anything you want to keep on a flash drive and replace the drive as soon as you're able to.
