Dear Abdul Wadood,
So I had the same problem as well. Basically the pdb2gmx adds all the hydrogens at the end anyways, despite its warnings. The only problem you may encounter is if you have multiple chains without chain IDs.
basically, just add -ignh at the end when running a pdb2gmx job. If interactivly, it will ask what you want to do for your ends, N and C terminus, as there are several available types ( NH3, NH2+, Coo-, Cooh, etc...)
It confused me in the beginning as well. If you look at the out .top and .gro or .pdb you can check if they are added back.

I had a similar error always with residue number 2 when using the amber
ports in gromacs. Manually adding the hydrogen to the backbone nitrogen that
connects to residue 1 will fix this.
You might know how to do this but just in case here is how I do it:
load your pdb into any builder and add the hydrogen into a reasonable
position(i.e no steric clash) on the nitrogen. write out a pdb. I find that
builders can change the format of pdb's so I usually just copy the H line
and add it into my original pdb formatting it as needed.
It is the only H that needs to be defined. pdb2gmx will take care of the
I'm not sure why this happens but I didn't look too much into it at the time
as I was learning how to use gromacs and everything was going wrong :)
Hope this helps,
