2002 chevy trailblazer front brakes activating while driving

check the clearance of the brake pedal rod into the master cylinder. Should be about 1" movement before the rod moves the piston .
The master cylinder has a blockage in the compensating ports so replace the master cylinder. As the brake oil is heating from brake application, it is not getting back to the reservoir so it is pressing the pads back onto the rotors which is heating the oil even more.

Why is my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer brake pedal not releasing?

See if the return spring on the brake pedal is connected or may be stretched. This is a pretty good sized spring that is attached to the pedal arm and connects to the body up under the dash.

Grinding sound in front

Check your front brakes. If the fluid in the brake master cylinder is down so are the brake pads
