Only when braking, not braking, or both?

This is called "brake snatch" this occurs when the vehicle sits for a while especially in the cold. The organic fibers of the pad come into contact with the rotor/drum and cause a harsh/rough feel until you use your brakes and wear the mini fibres off. Hence why you think it goes away when your car is warm. Just use your brakes and this wears off.

I thought about the brake thing more but still wondering.
This happens once the car is moving. until a certain speed usually 10 km the if i come to a stop it does it again until car is warm any ideas

sounds like more of a tranny sound i fear. almost like a wheel bearing at slow speeds. you know the growl or deep sound of grinding. ever so slightly then when i rech a certain speed its gone. then when i slow its there until car warms up....???
