You normally don't have to do this manually. If a filesystem isn't
cleanly unmounted, it is automatically checked (in the background if
possible, so it might take a while) on the next boot.

And in that case fsck won't bother you unless it runs into problems it
can't solve.

Thanks for everybodies help. I restarted in single user mode which
allowed me to do the check manually. I'll probably just let the
background check go if it happens again.
