It sounds like youre hard drive may be failing. Power it down and when you turn it on next, hold down the OPTION key ( should send you to start up manager ) right after you hit the power key. What do you see?

My MacBook Pro is stuck on the grey start up screen with the apple logo and a spinning circle. Sometimes it gets to a probationary circle with the spinning circle.
