PC stuck on "repairing disk errors this might take over a hour"

Hey i was hoping someone could help me.

im kind of a noob when it comes to computers so a simple explanation would be great.

I just build my first PC and everything was working good (other then the graphics card for some reason). 

well i turned it on and i got the "repairing disk errors this might take over a hour" screen.

PC is running on windows 10 and i tried to use a windows 10 disk to use the repair option and it game me a error screen that says

"To use System Restore, you must specify which

windows installation to restore.

Restart this computer, select an operating system, and

then select System Restore."


And  then it just says close then it brings me back to the previous screen.

Now I'm stuck because i don't know what that means. 



Here's my build

I do... I think it may be somewhat  related to finding a rare earth magnet had adhered to the bottom fo it overnight. None the less I would like tosee if there are any fixes.

Many thanks
