sounds like it may brake pads are worn and grinding on the rotors. But could be a wheel bearing too. Raise the front wheels and remove the tires check the brake pads for wear repair or replace as needed when you have the pads of turn hub to see if the grinding is coming from the bearings, no noise good replace the brakes,turn or replace rotors. Front wheel drive brake pads are no major job relax a little.
