Could this be impending hard drive failure

I have a Windows 7 PC where the hard drive fills up no matter how many times I run antivirus, scan CHKDSK, or disk cleanup. There is no grinding or clicking "sound of death" but thee hdd does spin loudly when that PC is inactive on sleep. I shut it down completely to prevent damage and need some of the files there. Is it time to back them up and change the disk?
