I am working on the genomic data of E. Coli. My sequence reads are of high quality, and I already removed the adaptors and overrepresented sequences. However, for all of my samples, I received a warning for "Per Sequence GC Content" in the FastQC tool, and for a few of my samples (around 2% of my samples), I received an error in this field. How should I deal with that? Should I remove the samples which have an error for "Per Sequence GC Content in FastQC"?

Warning/Error in FastQC need to be taken with a grain of salt and keeping the context of experiment you are doing in mind. They are rarely show stoppers. Post screenshots of what you are referring to using these instructions: How to add images to a Biostars post

Take a look at number of informative blog posts by FastQC authors that you will find of interest.
