Noise come from right side rear wheel

Just happened today... when I started the car and drove it out of my driveway I heard noise came from right side rear wheel..I didn't give it too much attantion cuz I'm almost late for work. but when the car hits the road and go over 10km/h I heard "pang" from the same location and then some scrub noise came, I drive the car really slowly and listen to it very carefully, seems like the noise came from the brake disc and caliper. Had a friend walking near the car and checked it out . He gave me the same answer, the noise comes from caliper and the brake disc..I don't konw why and yesterday was just fine ....

so I took the rim off and took a good look at the caliper...seems fine and I even tried to shake it a little bit, but it didn't shake. so ...Could anyone tell me what was wrong with my car ? and if possible,, how much would it cost me to fix it? I just done a rear brake disc and pads changing. so ..could it be the reason to this noise? lazy guys in the auto store didn't install the caliper into the right position? I can't drive the car now because the "pang" sounds really loud and it occurs every single time the rim rolls.. plz...

Could also be your wheel bearing. It tends to make very akward noise at low speed, and it sounds like it's coming from the disc/caliper.

Noise from Rear

Sounds like the Parking Brake shoes, or you’re parking brake cable(s) may be sticking on.

Pull off the rear disc and have a look at the shoes and see if the material is pulling away from the metal seat.

Check the pins that hold the shoes on the backing plate for corrosion damage.

Check the operation of the parking brake cables left to right. With the rear wheels off the ground spin the wheel by hand while another person slowly (click by click) applies the parking brake.
