Front Wheel Bearings

When lifted off the ground, and I spin the front wheels, it sounds like the rotors are catching slightly, which makes a scraping noise.

If I apply pressure to the spoke of my wheel thats closest to the side that drags, the noise goes away entirely.

also, when I spin the wheels, at the point the dragging noise occurs, I notice that the tire dips a little at the very top. It returns to normal when the dragging stops.

There is also a quiet sound from the other side that sounds roughly like a bag of marbles.

Are my wheel bearings shot?

Thanks,
-Ryan

Mine Humm a Drone sound above 40 MPH, and it is a bad bearing. If I go around a bend while moving to the left, it goes away.
