After driving a short distance (4-5 miles) I noticed when pulling into my garage that there

Inspect brakes. Also inspect front wheel bearings. You should be able to identify which one of these items is the issue.

Your left front caliper has stuck.You will need a caliper and brake pads. I advise replacing the other front caliper too.When one sticks usually the other side will start doing it too.
