I believe this is the red ring of death that the Xbox is famous for. There was an extended warranty put out by Microsoft to cover what seems to be failure prone console but I'm not certain if you would still be covered. Check their official site for the red ring of death but most people I know tend to purchase a new console rather than repair it. Don't feel bad, some people are on their 3rd console in 4 years.
