    As you said, those are crawl errors,

    You can do following,

    >> 1. Find out the link that caused this crawl errors
    Google webmaster tools-->Health-->> Crawl errors

    >> 2. Check the link, if its broken then fix it.

    >> 3. Once done, Now in GWT select that specific error & press button "mark as fixed"

    There may be many other reasons that can cause such errors.
    You can share more details on the crawl errors, so that we can help you in better way.

      Those errors are 404 error, means link broken. I have added those two links to Remove urls under Optimization tab and pressed Mark as fixed button. Will it be ok now? I hope so...........

        Perfect,

        Also, please check in your website if there is any mention of those 2 links either through direct link or through word hyperlinked.
        If yes, remove those links from there as well.

        also, block them through robots.txt file,

        User-agent: *
        Allow: /
        Disallow: /Yourpagename1.htm
        Disallow: /Yourpagename2.htm
