There is nothing wrong with your board concerning connectivity. Although you have overlaps on your silkscreen. I would also advise to use a ground plane on both sides of your board. I would also recommend not using the E$ names. Name them something that will tell what they are. Like resistors should be R1, R2, ect.. Capacitors are C1, C2, etc.. I also hope you put the values in on your schematic. Otherwise you will forget what they are when you actually have your board in your hand.

That error could be a website error. I can tell you that BatchPCB blows. Look through the forum here, you will see a ton of people having problems with that site. If this is your first PCB, use OSH Park. They are cheap and there quality cannot be beat. When you upload the files, it will show a rendering of your board before you buy.
