Is this a bad sector on HDD?

I bought this samsung 1tb hard drive like 4days ago and I think there is a bad sector.

The problem I've seen so far with my computer is:

1) Sometimes windows does not load.
2) When I want to download a file, can not save the file to a specific directory.

Also I've used full chkdsk utility but it didn't fix it.

Please see the image below.
Is this a bad sector and should I change the HDD to other one?
