The bearings are a hub and bearing assembly on each wheel, and should be fairly easy to replace - a bolt on item essentially.

is there any way to tell if it's tha rite or left or should i replace both when i turn wheel to tha left like in a curve it stops

Wouldn't be a bad idea to replace both. However, always defer to the side making the noise. Think of the extra load on the wheel that is taking the turn. If the noise goes away turning left - then think of checking the right side first.
