Well, did it run the fsck?
Those messages look pretty routine and should be handled
by the regular fsck done on a normal boot.  Usually the 
regular fsck will run and clean up most simple stuff.
Try rebooting the machine again and see if it still has the
same messages.   If so, then see if they will do the single-user
fsck for you.   But, I am guessing that it actually already 
cleaned up for you.
