I have recently replaced rear wheel bearing ( driver's side) and this morning I am staring to hear a humming noise either coming from drivers side or from engine ,,I can only hear noise when driving above...

Could be another wheel bearing. You can jack up each wheel and rotate it to see if there is a difference in other wheels.

I had a noise like that in my Acura. Turned out to be low on transmission oil.
Hope this helps.

Fwd lights always on jeep compass

try it in dirt yet (gravel, sand, grass dirt)
since you didnt post transfer case type can't answer
if you use , part time 4wd on dry pavement this will happen as
will 4low or lock. read the operators guide, one more time.

its a new car get it serviced, or drive in dirt, and turn off 4wd
see if it stays off. if you use the car wrong, the dealer will just stare at you, in a very not so funny way.

new cars come with options, or by sub model, (same really)
some have Automatic Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive
which one?
The Compass also features two electronically controlled four-wheel drive systems. Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II, Freedom Drive I is a full-time four-wheel drive system with locking capabilities

if some one used LOCK
you need to unluck in dirt. drive to side of road with gravel
or any loose surface and get bad to normal.
read opeators guide 1 more time.....

It is hard to pin point the problem with out seeing the vehicle in person however from what you have described it sounds like you have a ball joint or a tire rod end broken you probably notice it more as you described when you use the for wheel drive you applying alot of torque and this will cause the symptoms you are having.You should take the truck in to a front end specialty shop this is serious your steering could snap off and brake if you let it go to long.
