HDD too hot "Dell LATITUDE E5430"

I clearly have a problem here and I'd love some advise to know if I am doing the right think, this is how my HDD look like after it is been under pressure for a bit, anyway it is enough I turn on my laptop to get to 50 Celsius, so I was planning to upgrade to a Crucial SSD 500GB.
So now I would like to know if this is going to solve my problem or you think there might be something else that is harming the laptop and take temperature so high...
Changing the thermal paste along with the SDD upgrade would help??

Thanks in advance everyone

Dude get rid of the spinning hard disk and go SSD. Not only is it faster, cooler, quieter but much more reliable than spinning! No brainer. Don't hesitate!

open up the laptop and check all the cooling fans for dust build-up . give it a thorough cleaning. that could be causing heat

I agree with getting a SSD. Check for dust build up as well and what type of surface are you using it on? Airflow is important so I would suggest using it on a flat surface with decent airflow.

Definitely will be cooler with an SSD, a 7200rpm spinning drive creates more heat than any flash-based drive. As mentioned it could be fans not moving air well enough, so dust them off if needed. Maybe your laptop is just a crappy design that doesn't allow heat to dissipate, you could also invest in a laptop cooling pad.
c'mon get happy!
