Okay. I suspect this is may be two different issues. So let's start with the noise that stops when you hit the brakes and if that fixes both that is great.
When you are pressing the brakes, all you are doing is applying pressure to the rotor that is attached to the hubs.
So if the clicking noise starts as soon as it starts spinning then the way to narrow this down is to lift the front end so both front tires are off the ground and spin each wheel by hand and see if you can hear it. If so then we need to narrow it down from there by removing the wheel and making sure the rotor and hub are not loose.
The rotor should not move much or be wobbly when the brakes are not applied.
Is there any history to this? Meaning did you just recently replace the brakes or rotors?
Lastly, reinstall the tire and torque the lug nuts to 100 foot pounds.
Then drive it and see if the noise is still there. This could just be a loose wheel.
