Clicking Sound in brakes

I am experiencing a clicking sound in the front after I apply my foot on the brake. This click happens after you drive forward after backing up and you touch the brake pedal. It happens as well if you drive in reverse after driving forward. When I come home from work and I am backing my car down my driveway I hear the click when I touch the brakes.

Spring of 2018 I put on new rotors and pads. The pads I put on were the Akebono brand pads with their pins, clips and sensors. No sure if this sound is related to the growl I get at low speeds when turning right. I hear it mostly when I take a hard right out of my driveway. It sounds like a wheel bearing growl to me. I am wondering if the clicking sound and growling sound are related. Bad wheel bearing??

I have this issue on my Jetta. The clicking when I apply brakes - is the pads moving in the caliper. just slight but they click. Other than the annoyance - everything stops great.
