Question about 1999 Chevrolet Malibu
The pulling is caused by a bad brake caliper. The brake caliper on the opposite side from the pulling is the culprit. If the car pulls to the left when you stop the caliper is bad on the right side. If the car pulls to the right when you stop the caliper is bad on the left. They are sticking is what's causing the problem and the solution is to replace the bad caliper. As far as the grinding it sounds like you need to remove the brake rotors and have them surfaced by a parts store or garage and replace the brake pads. If you don't understand how to do this it might be a good idea to have a reputable garage to do the work for you. Brakes are nothing to play around with if you have never worked with them before. You have to be able to stop before you go forward for safety sake.

Bad caliper, or you just need to rebuild your caliper. The grinding noise is likely caused from the pads being bad and the rivets are grinding on the rotor. I recommend if you are a handy person, rebuild the caliper, if not then buy a new one and replace it and bleed the brakes
