It is very likely that your rotors or front tire rims are not mounted correctly. Do not drive the vehicle until the front wheels and brakes are checked. Have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, come and inspect your brakes for you and repair or replace your rotors if needed. This may be a dangerous situation and you should not drive the vehicle until it is resolved.
