Sounds like one is grabbing harder than the others. Have it checked out by a certified brake tech. As soon as possible. Your safety and the safety of other motorists rely on your brakes operating properly.

If it is your engine light that's on , it has nothing to do with your brakes, in most case's if your car is equipped with a brake light it is a separate light. The wheel pulling is a brake issue on the right side, most likely a bad shoe. If the engine light is on have the code read.
