Help: git log failed with code 128 error: Failed to traverse parents of commit ?

Still new to Sourcetree and seems I have messed up my local repo for with the error below

it seems to have messed up a majority of my local brances and checking them out results in error with blank uncommited status and spinning icon in app ?


Not sure how to fix it ? Or better to just start a fresh local repo and pull from ?
