Check for free wheel movement. Brakes may be binding due to lack of free caliper movement, may require caliper greasing or wheel bearings may be toast. Jack up the car on the affected side, start and free wheel on third gear. Listen for grinding/groaning noises. If thats the case then replace bearing. Front bearings live for 80,000kms approx. Replacing both bearings is a good idea considering your current mileage.
