Gave so much noise like grinding rotor in my sonata

Check your brake pads, may be worn down to the rivets. If the pad wear is uneven from the other side, or from outer pad to inner pad, you need to have that checked for a problem with the brakes.

Would bad brake pads make a grinding sound when driving or just when using the brakes?

There could be a couple of things with this. one simple answer is yes it will or could make a grinding noise while driving and using the brakes.
There could be (possibly) a small rock or dirt in and around the caliper and pads.
Most brake pads come with a clip that when the pads where down it makes a squealing noise, that is an indicator that your pads are wearing down. Best bet, if you have the capabilities, is to remove either one or both of the front wheels and visually inspect the pads and rotors.

Grinding or rubbing noise in left front wheel, mostly when braking . What do i look for?

Grinding is a sign on brakes in need of replacement. Your pads are worn through and now the metal backing plate of the pad is grinding up against the rotor. Replace the pads and rotors asap to prevent further damage.

It is never normal for your brakes to "grind". A lil squeaky, not so bad. Grinding, not so good. I would take it back to whoever replaced them and have them checked. Ceramic pads are better pads because the stop you better and last longer than matallic pads, and the also create less dust, but they should not be grinding. It could be a sign of improper installation or a sign of bad or worn rotors. Definately have it checked out.

I notice when I come to a stop like at a traffic light, I hear a squeak from what sounds like the front passenger wheel. I had it inspected in June and they didn't mention the brakes, it passed the...

Disc brakes usually include a part called a wear indicator. A wear indicator is a small piece of metal attached to the brake pad that contacts the brake rotor when the pad material has been worn down to a certain level. When the wear indicator grinds against the rotor, it makes a squealing noise as you apply the brakes. This noise is a signal which tells you it's time to have your brakes examined.
In other words, noisy brakes aren't something to mess around with. If you hear that sound when you apply the brakes in your vehicle, have them checked out as soon as possible.
I hope this helps.

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?

Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

When I put on my brakes and my vehicle begins to stop but it makes a grinding noise. I think it might be the brake pads but what do you think it is?

This is a common sign that the front brake pads are completely worn down to the metal. Once it gets to the point that it make a grinding noise, the rotors are damaged beyond use. I would say at this point that both front rotors and pads will have to be replaced. Brakes are a safety issue. It needs to be done correctly and may be beyond your experience level to do it yourself. If you choose to tackle this job, send me a reply and I will tell you exactly how to go about it.

Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.
