Looks like disk where you have saved your backups is doesn't have enough free disk space well you can either delete some files on the disk to gain more disk space or change the backup settings to start new backup on another disk i don't remember very well but if you move backups to new disk and change the currently backup location to new backup disk new backups should use the moved backups in new backup location.

I highly recommend converting to Macrium Reflect, free or pay-for, for all future backups/restores.  Meanwhile, yes, get your backup images moved from the internal HD onto a reliable external media, such as a platter-driven HD, USB sticks [set of 2 128GB sticks at a time would work best] or even DVD blanks.
