This site has a step by step tutorial, read and understand what it's doing. I would first test it on a lab box to see the result.

from looking at the webcheck command, it appears to be correct

you are checking a host and expecting a 200 response but seems it's password protected so it would return a 403.  since it's a warning in nagios, that is correct because it wasn't the expected result

another possibility is that you are using the IP address instead of the actual host name
that could cause a 403 to be returned depending how your web server is configured
