brake noise?? wtf

I've had my 05 X for 2 months and have a scraping metal type squeel when cruising. Really noticeable with the top down. It goes away as soon as I touch the brakes. Is it the disks, the drums or maybe a wheel bearing? Appreciate any help on a solution.

X2 caliper is probably sticking, causing the pad to rub constantly.

This morning the noise was still there so I decided to pull the parking brake a few times when I stopped. Hadn't used it yet. No more noise during my 12 mile drive to work. Hopefully it was just a little stuck.
