I don't think such an issue makes your driver eligible for a replacement or repair. It's not a re-allocated sector (a.k.a. bad sector), but only a pending sector. You could call it a "suspicious sector" that may or may not become a bad sector. What I would do is install HDSentinel and keep it running, and configure its alerting system to warn you about any further issues that may come up. That pending sector may mean nothing, or may be a "teaser" of worse things to come. It's hard to tell which one, at this time.

I get it, I contacted Wd to see what they will say, if nothing I will continue using it, I see that I can correct that 1 pending sector with sentinel, what do you think should I do it ?

I'd just keep using the drive with HDSentinel monitoring it in the background. I use HDSentinel on my main machine, even though I have no HDDs or SSDs with such pending sectors (yet) ;)
