Does the noise change if you turn the wheel back and forth? You say it stops if you turn right, does it come back once you complete the turn?
You say it is louder when you use the brakes? Do you actually feel a vibration that is in time with the thump when you use the brakes?
If so you could have a broken brake rotor. I have seen them crack in a straight line and cause a strange noise.
It could also be a bad wheel bearing allowing the wheel to shift. Hard to say for sure without hearing it ourselves.
I would start by jacking up the front end and see if you can move the tire/wheel in/out at the top or in any direction but rolling. Any play will show a problem, check both sides ad sound can travel and cause you to "hear" it in the wrong place. Also check the rears for the same reason.
