Problem with booting (fsck)

Relative newb.

When switching on it fails and goes to this screen

(ie without -a or -p options)

dracut warning: e2fsck returned with 4
dracut warning: _Fedora-17-i686 contains a file systen with errors, check forced
dracut warning: _Fedora-17-i686: inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.
dracut warning: *** An error ocurred during the file system check
dracut warning: *** dropping you to a shell; the system will try 
dracut warning: *** to mount the filesystem when you leave the shell

dracut warning:

dropping to debug shell

I would run fsck manually, but I don't understand how. Exiting the shell, it boots up ok, and everything seems to work normally as far as I can tell.

Any help greatly appreciated, but if someone could kindly talk me through what to do, that would be great.
