Default Help! FastQC problem on drosophila RNA-seq data!

I have app 70 RNA-seq samples on drosophila. When going through the FastQC, there are three red flags to almost all the samples. I'm new to this field and could anyone tell what was wrong and what I should do (please in some details)? Great thanks!

Short answer .. no need to worry. Proceed with data analysis. and other links within this thread.

A "failed' flag in FastQC should be considered as a guide. It does not automatically mean that the data is bad.

The GC plot "bulge" may represent bacterial (endo-symbionts) that some drosophila populations have. (This may or may not apply in your case).
