Hi. The sound you are hearing is probably the wheel bearing. Every time you step on the brake you center the rotor, which is connected the the hub and bearing, stopping the noise. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the brake noise to pinpoint the sound.
