While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE

Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.

Metallic rattling sound after starting engine. Will go away after a few minutes. seems to be coming from passenger side near firewall.

There's a little piece of aluminum called a heat shield that's loose. You can bang it back in place with a hammer.
