I would not worry, its the abs system altering the braking pressure to stop you slipping, it should mak the peddle judder a little

no, dont worry. the ABS can make all sorts of grinding/grunting noises when the abs modulator and pump are running. This is completely normal, even though it can sound pretty bad when it happens.
