Why are you worried about it?

A quick fsck is done everytime you boot to make sure that there has been 
no corruption to your file sysem (assuming here that you have used ext3 
or ext4 when you installed). And there is a more comprehensive fsck done 
after every (?)20 boots of the system.

"Mum" he asked, "are these my brains?"
"Not yet," she replied.
