SOURCE: brake light problem Corolla 97
the tail light and brake lights are working from double contact bulbs. check the grounding, you dont have enough ground from one of the bulbs

probably a dumb question, but if there is a backing plate, did you make sure it isnt bent and hitting the rotor? you never want to sand new rotors, although i dont think it would cause this concern. i would suggest lightly scuffing up the brake pads. this will eliminate any noise caused by the contact of the rotors and pads. if it goes away then you know its a problem with the pads/rotors.
scoring of only the inside rotors would make me think that possibly the caliper slides are frozen up. make sure they move quite freely on the slides. it is not uncommon for brake pads to score rotors though.
but brake noises at low speeds that dont' change when applying light brake pressure are usually some sort of metal or something contacting the rotor.

When checking to make sure noise is wheel bearings while driving vehicle at speed the noise is loudest (if possible) turn steering wheel back and forth enough to shift the weight of the vehicle from side to side and if it's a wheel bearing there should be quite a bit of difference in the noise.
If about the same noise check the wear pattern on the tires for flat spots or unusual wear pattern if there is rotate tires. If nothing still found jack up vehicle with all 4 tires of the ground. Use jack stands for this. Get some one in vehicle to run it at speed the noise develops, I use a long screw driver (2 feet long) as a stethoscope to find where noises come from. Try with and without 4 wheel drive if possible. Good luck cause noises can be a real pain in the b____.
