Scratchy Brakes

Hey guys, is it common for the front brake(only one) to sound like its scratching(not squealing/whining)when braking softly and when hitting bumps?

The pads are just standard honda pads and have always squealed when stopping but lately the left front pad scratches and squeals. It sounds like its cutting through my rotor haha, but I still have plenty of pad left.

Has anyone else run into this problem or know anything about it. I feel like it could be from hitting all those damned pot holes this winter, cause its only on one side.

Double-check the pads - inside pad tends to wear faster if brakes are sticking. This is also the pad that typically has the squealer-bar on it.
Could also be sand/rock in the groove in the pad.
