The grinding is only when i am not pressing the brake. Its mostly as im turning and accelerating, It sometimes sounds as if the brakes are skipping on the rotor. I pulled the tire and the brakes are kinda low but... not low enough that they are at metal.

Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.
Sounds like wheel bearing, an easy way to check it out is to just jack up that corner enough to get the weight off the wheel then with one hand on the top and one on the bottom of your tire check for any play. If there is play your bearing is bad. the play will most likely be very very little (less than 1/16 of an inch) but there should none whatsoever. if the grinding noise happens when turning left, check the right side or grinding when turning right check the left side. sometimes the bearing has a bad seal or wasn't properly lubed when being made.
check your brakes to see how worn out they our the indicator on your brake shoes could be telling you some thing , like you need new brakes. You could also have a rock stuck in between the brake shoe and rotor .
Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.
sounds like a possible wheel bearing issue or brake pad issue!!! i would definatly have this looked at, but in the meantime, make sure that it isnt just a backing plate contacting the rotor ...hope this was helpful!!
3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things.
a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering
reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a
whining than a grinding).
