You're not providing enough details to give specific advice.

If this filesystem is already mounted as /usr (which is the default mountpoint for an "f" partition), you might try booting from CD and running fsck from there to ensure that you are not trying to fsck a mounted filesystem.  If your hard drive is failing and fsck cannot fix issues because it can't write the changes to disk, you should attempt to copy the entire drive onto a replacement drive and fsck that instead.
