Grinding noise while moving

Looking for some help/advise. As I'm moving I hear a grinding sound. Similar to the sound you would hear as your break pads wear down when you are coming to a stop. Problem is that I hear it all the time as soon as I start rolling. I noticed a couple of days ago when it was warm enough to have the windows down, so I'm not sure how long it has been going on. I can't really hear it when the windows are up.

Any ideas what it might be? Could my calipers be sticking?

If your calipers were sticking the rotors would be extremely hot and the pads could be smoking. Is the noise from the front or rear?

Are you applying any force to the brakes as your rolling? My brakes creek like a gator when i'm slow rolling. A good point is the sticking of the pads, although it is uncommon, the above post is a good point.

I think the rear. That is a good point. Rotors not unusually hot and no smoke.

Not when applying to breaks. It happens when I start going and continues.

I did play in the mud about two weeks back, but washed her last week. I wonder if it could be something stuck. I looked and can't see anything. Maybe I have to pull the tire off (?) .
