All my pictures are coming out blurred on the left hand side. This seems to be a problem with the camera, as when I look through the viewer before taking a photo, the viewing image is blurred on that side too.
This problem seems to have just occurred, as when I last used the camera only a couple of weeks ago the pictures and viewer image was fine.

blurring occurs not depending on ISO, i think the lens is the problem. try to clean the lens glass carefully, is there some grease stick on the lens? if not it might be dislocated one of the lens structure. have you try another lens?
Blur warning. The camera is warning you that the shutter speed may be too slow for you to handhold the camera steady enough to prevent camera motion from blurring your photo. For full details refer to the "Warning Messages and Displays" section of the manual (page 113 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy here.
One of a few things might be happening 1. Photos being taken at high zoom (i.e. 200mm) are susceptible to camera shake, even though the lens is focusing properly. The solution here is use a tripod, zoom out, or steady yourself. 2. Photos being taken without flash when flash should really be used will result in motion blur (which is slightly different than camera shake). This is due to the camera using a longer shutter speed to let more light in, with the side effect being that objects will move while the shutter is open, blurring the picture. The solution here is to use a flash, or take pictures in better light. 3. The camera may be focusing on something other than what you intended. 3. If you are taking photos in good light with a steady hand, and the camera is choosing the correct subject to focus on, then yes, the lens could need readjusted, though this is not a very likely scenario. If the lens is "hunting" for focus, that could be a sign that something is amiss. A local camera shop can verify the accuracy of focus for your lens.
More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.
Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.
A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...
Perfectly normal. Indoors there's much less light than there is under the sun. One way to compensate for this is to use the flash. This is limited in range, and will not work well if you have two (or more) subjects at different ranges.
Another way to compensate is to leave the shutter open longer to collect more light. This causes blurring if the subject is moving. It can also lead to blurring if the camera is moving, as it inevitably will if you're holding it in your hand.
Another way is to open up the aperture, letting in more light. Some exposure modes favor this, while others do the opposite. A related method is to use a faster lens, if your camera accepts interchangeable lenses. Since you didn't bother to specify the make and model of your camera, I can't tell you what modes you may have available, or any lens choices.
Another possible way to compensate is to increase the ISO sensitivity, so that the image can be made with less light. Again, without knowing what camera you have, I can't give you much details.
Thanks for posting the photos.....they tell a lot.
You need to return that camera and get a refund.
The camera is defective.
The first two photos were taken under good lighting conditions and you should have gotten good shots.
The last two were taken at low light and the camera was using 1/30th of a second shutter speeds which could account for some blurring due to camera movement.
The last one appeared to be a flash shot and it selected 1/30th second. Not a good thing for the camera to do.
But all photos have the appearance that you are shooting through a fog.
And all photos were shot with an ISO setting of 200.
There is something wrong with this camera for that to happen on the first two shots.
I checked the EXIF data that is embedded in the photos. That gives you the shutter speed, aperture setting and focal length, ISO settings, and other information.
I have not seen a review of the Pentax Optio 50. But the older S50 did not get good reviews.
If I were you, I would look for a different brand of camera.
For a few dollars more you can get a Nikon 5600.
