I have two 3700 routers and I keep getting this error, what do I need to look at to trouble shoot this?

What does a 'show interface' of your upstream indicate?

If the circuit is going down/up and your BGP session is for a provider connected to that circuit, your BGP will flap, as well.

13 carrier transitions and all of those errors are not good.

If your ISP "owns" the circuit, ask them to take it down for up to one hour during your low peak for testing.  Do a "clear count s1/0", no quotes, first and monitor the errors between the clearing of the counters and the maintenance.
