How can I stop this error.

The error is coming because it is a grayscale image.

Probably you have your Photoshop preferences to default to a different colour space than that, so the colours look wrong. Try making PS default to sRGB and open one of those images. If it looks good, you can embed an sRGB profile in it and save it under a new name.
