    Try your heat/dirt shield on the inside of your front disks (you may have to remove your wheels). This happened to me last week and all it was was the shield had bent over on the inside of the disk and was touching it and no more, just bent it back into place and has been ok since.
    Hope this helps you matey....

    If you want to check the bearings, jack the car up and spin the wheel, listen for humming sound, and also grab the wheel firmly at both 6-12 and 9-3 o'clock and rock it feeling for play, there is another method but i've only tried it on a rear wheel drive car, and that is to jack one side, start car and put it in gear, and the wheel in the air will spin and the one on the ground will stay motionless, and then you will really hear if there is anything wrong with the bearing.

    From what you say i doub't it is a bearing, as Davie says, check the shield and make sure there is no stone caught in there somewhere, only other thing i can think if is to strip brakes down and give the calipers a real good cleaning, and use plenty of copper grease when you put them back together.
