Take a moment and review what those lines in the tune2fs output mean

the ext2/ext3 filesystem can be configured via tune2fs to require a
fsck check periodically in two ways.  One is mount count and the other
is time interval since last check. You have both ways configured. And
more importantly...the filesystem is configured to require a check
after ONE mount!

The system is doing exactly what the filesystem superblock is asking
it to do..do an fsck after each mount.  This is not what you want.

use the tune2fs  -c option and set the maximum mount count to
something sane or turn it off completely.
