During startup the message above pops up, it has something to do with mounting.

However if I don't choose any of the options and just wait, ubuntu loads normally.

I am using ubuntu as my only OS. How can I fix this?

I am really new to ubuntu, so I would really appreciate a step-by-step answer.

Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T). Type cat /etc/fstab, and post the results. cat means catonecate - it shows what is in that file. – Jack Feb 7 '13 at 5:43
There is an open bug report about this on launchpad. – Jack Feb 7 '13 at 5:54

This made me double take the first time I saw it too.

This isn't really a problem, since everything still works. The script that sets up encryption is just impatient, and it will do what it is supposed to once cryptswap is ready. I suggest we leave alone and wait for the updates to fix it.
