Front left side wheel noise

So I have had this Mustang for about 2 weeks now and I have noticed the front left wheel making some weird noise, it also over heats, what I mean is the rim gets hot because something must be rubbing on it. I think that it is the brake pads that they are to close and rubbing on the wheel or bearing (i think its called that). So my main question has anyone ever had this problem or know what else it could be? Ive asked 2 different people in life and they told me that its these pads that are to close.
Is this hard to fix by yourself?
Should I try to just replace my brake pads? If so how would I do that? I know how to take off the wheel and most likely take of the pads, but I got no idea of how to place them back in.

Thank you for replying, I will try to get back as soon as possible to each comment!

Thanks

Hey the rotor over heating would be because your pads are rubbing when your not pressing the brake but that's not because of your pads it's because of your caliper. I would suggest getting a rebuild kit it will replace the worn out caliper bolts and other hardware which will allow the caliper to float back away from the rotor when your off the brake peddle. Now if this doesn't fix the problem your caliper may be seized and you need a new one. The reason I suggest the rebuild kit first is because it's a cheaper fix and a lot easier to do then replacing the caliper. You don't want to do an expensive fix only to find out later it was something cheaper. Hope this helps!

For now I'd say just focus on that wheel. If it fixes it then take a look at the other wheel if it looks bad then do that one too. Idk if you can buy one side at a time the lot might have both sides in it just because when you do brakes you always do both sides at the same time.

Could it be the bearing of the wheel? Or the caliber? Which one sounds more like it? The wheel heats up and it makes this thump/squeaking noise and when is press the brake easily it pulls the car to the left! Plz help out! Thanks for your answers so far! And one more question, if I buy let's say the caliber rebuild and it still makes noise am I able to return this item to either auto zone or orieallys?
