I'd say you need to analyze deeper - unless that page's traffic doesn't really matter to your site. It's basically an informational message, not a warning.

This doesn't necessarily mean that your traffic has dropped organically.
I recently got this message -- for years, we had included a link to a certain page in every email newsletter we sent out. A month or two ago, we decided to stop including that link in the newsletter. Since email was the only real traffic driver to the page, visits slowed to a trickle.
Google Webmaster Tools alerted me to the traffic drop, so I can say with certainty that this alert doesn't necessarily have anything to do with organic traffic.

Thanks tester. It's an important page, but my research just confirms the traffic dropped, what else? I guess is better to know it than ignore it, but what exactly can you do now?

Just a note that we've published a separate thread about the more general question raised here, about Webmaster Tools monitoring non-search traffic and what the mechanism for that might be. See...
Webmaster Tools and non-search traffic... interesting comment

Thanks. Any tips on how to face the task of gaining more traffic ?(or at least recover some)
