Could you please advise me on this situation.

I have received this message from Google Webmaster tolls

Dear owner or webmaster of http://www.thespecifier.com/

While crawling your site, we have noticed an increase in the number of transient soft 404 errors around 2013-06-27 11:00 UTC (London, Dublin, Edinburgh). Your site may have experienced outages. These issues may have been resolved. Here are some sample pages that resulted in soft 404 errors:

It goes on to list four pages from my site.   when I enter these into the address bar the correct information comes up.

Questions
1.   Is this anything to be worried about?
2.  How do I check whether the problem has been resolved?
3.  Is there anything I should do to fix this?
4.  If so what is it?
5.  Is there anything I can do to prevent this arising again?


Have I chosen the correct areas for this problem?
Thanks

Maybe your site is experiencing downtime during Google crawl... Try to resubmit your sitemap to GWT.
If everything is fine with those pages, these warnings will be removed soon...
