I dont know, it could be a crack in your pads, heat will do crazy things, warped rotors or even loose calipers, or calipers that are binding// sticking.

I took my 2002 highlander in to fix the brakes. The mechanic told me the problem was warped disc cause by overheating. Appearently the pads I put on where the wrong compound, making the disc really heat- up and warping the disc. My mechanic put in Toyota pads and a shim kit. The problem is now fixed.
