Grinding sound from brakes

I have new pads and rotors (600 miles ago). All was fine until recently.

Now I have an odd situation. When LIGHTLY applying the brakes, I get a grinding noise coming from the right rear. It doesn't happen every time I hit the brakes either. When it first started, I could only hear it while making a slow turn. Now it's more frequent but inconsistent.

Any thoughts?

Jam on the brakes HARD a few times and see if it goes away.

Thanks, Ron.

Turns out it was the steel anti-squeal plate that came with the new pads. It slipped and was eating into the rotor. It would move around a bit which created the inconsistency in the noise.

Thankfully it was minor.
