Inspect inner fender walls to make sure they are secure, probably easiest to get it up in the air to do a thorough inspection, axles, breaks, exhaust and such.

inner fender looks fine. The noise goes away for a min when I hit the breaks.

Then I would have the breaks checked. The noise would be coming from the breaks.

even though it is not grinding, nor was it cherping?

Then no, but the noise must be related as in the area of the breaks. Possible cv joint in the drive axle or a wheel bearing starting to go. Never the less breaks, front axles, and wheel bearings should be looked at. All in the same area of each other.

thank you. I will verify the breaks. If that looks ok I will contact the dealer, as that should be warranty.
