Nautilus is a graphical application so you ought to use gksudo instead :

gksudo nautilus

When you want to do graphical things with high prilivegies, gksudo and gksu are much more convinient than sudo and su.

It is an uncritical message; nautilus should run normally; for reference see this report at launchpad.
