As it is only one side I would say the brake caliper is stuck, it will need replacement, get one that is unloaded and a new set of rear pads and do the other side so you start out with a fresh set in the rear. Then do a really good fluid flush on all 4 wheels just to make sure there isn't any moisture in the system.

Also maybe a bad brake hose. Do this test lift rear and with right rear brake locked up loosen brake bleeder screw make sure you see brake fluid come from hole in bleeder screw then try to spin wheel if it stays tight the caliper piston is seized up but if you can spin it the brake hose is bad.
