Depends on what it says.

Resume from disk is enabled by default, yes, but the kernel is clever
enough to see that there is no suspended session and continue normal
booting. It will simply inform the user of what it is doing. Linux
booting is quite "chatty", but all messages are not errors. Even if you
see errors, many times its simply the kernel trying something, failing
(maybe that thing doesn't exist), and continuing through some other
avenue. All in a typical day for the kernel.

We can better judge if you post the messages you are worried about ;-)

Besides, suspending/resuming to disk is very useful. I don't halt my
computer, I suspend it. Resuming is much faster than booting.
