It is highly likely that you have a caliper hanging up. I just recently had the same problem on my 2008 Jeep. The problem was the slides were rusted and frozen solid so one side of the caliper would not release from the other. Definitely have it looked at. It will kill your gas mileage and most likely kill the rotor and pads.

Here's a video to lubricate the sliders. It seems it's a go-pro. A little tough to watch, but it will give you an idea of what the problem might be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IxJFoZxKaE

Also could be a collapsed brake hose. A brake can be collapsed on the inside of the hose with no visual collapsing on the outside of the hose.

If it is the caliper it is intermitent I put the brakes on my self lubed all the slides neversiezed all the bolts
