Fan malfunction

This question is not answered

Hi, when i turn on my dell latitude 5430 i recieve a message on black background that says:

Fan malfunction

to continue press F1 key

to change setup option press F2 key

to run onboard diagnostics press f5 key.

I've ran onboard diagnostics but it did not find any issues. what should i do about the fan? the warranty is still up to date.
