Short read while trying to open /dev/sda2

I just resized a .vdi from my host from 15.5G to 120G. I tried to resize the partition from the guest (ubuntu server) using resize2fs

[email protected]:~# sudo resize2fs /dev/sda2 115G resize2fs 1.42.13 (17-May-2015) resize2fs: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda2 Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock. 

Now, according to my understanding of the situation /dev/sda2 is corrupt. However, my server-VM still works fine and has no problems running on the partition. fdisk -l /dev/sda outputs:

Disk /dev/sda: 120 GiB, 128849018880 bytes, 251658240 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x32955267  Device     Boot   Start      End  Sectors  Size Id Type /dev/sda1  *       2048   999423   997376  487M 83 Linux /dev/sda2       1001470 33552383 32550914 15.5G  5 Extended /dev/sda5       1001472 33552383 32550912 15.5G 8e Linux LVM 

Now to my question: Is this normal and healthy for the server and if not, how do I fix it?
