Please don't post similar content in multiple threads.

Start by reading FastQC blog posts from authors of FastQC that you will find at this link. FastQC is a QC program so a failure does not immediately mean that the data is bad. You need to look at the results of FastQC in context of the kind of data you are analyzing. e.g. ChIPseq, RNAseq data may show failures on over-represented sequences. But that is expected with those kinds of experiments.
