Sounds like the hub bearing is on its way out, if it is then the noise will get worse and worse untill its really loud, drive it to a garage while you still can and find out for sure. If it is the bearing, consider getting both done at the same time. Also more or less all garages do bearings, so shop around for quotes...

It could be the brake pad making light contact with the disk in which case the brake piston may be sticking slightly on that side. A wheel bearing starting to fail normally makes a rumbling type of sound and does it even when driving in a straight line.

Hopefully you don't just steam into a garage and ask them to replace both bearings without asking them to check they have in fact failed or you'll end up paying money for something that may not need 'fixed' then have to spend more cash getting the 'actual' problem sorted! good luck!
