If your caliper is sticking, you should be able to go to the wheel that is doing so and feel the heat, and I mean really feel it with your hand next to the wheel, with out touching it. And there will be the smell of the brake pads, also the rotor will be blue, however BE CAREFUL, don't touch anything when it is so hot, or you will severely burn you hands.
