Wheel bearing hub going bad?

I was greasing ball joints, tie rods, ECT and noticed that when you spin the left front tire you can hear a clicking from the wheel bearing accompanied by a slight grinding from pad/rotor contact. But it's not constant it clicks and grinds on a portion of the 360 degree spin almost like the rotor was warped but they are powerslot cryo rotors and hawk pads with maybe 10,000miles on them. the pads are wearing very very tiny bit unevenly but there is no play in the wheel bearing.

Time for a new hub/bearing?

Pull the wheel and brakes off and check the hub directly.
