Front brakes howl 2013 RGU

I bought a used 2013 RGU a month ago. Lately when backing the bike up the front brakes howl. They seem to operate just fine at all speeds. The rotors seem fine with no ridges. Its kinda embarrassing.

Check brake calipers pistons may not releasing.
If can get the front wheel off the ground make sure spin free.
Also check for warping but you say rides fine if warp rotors will pulsate when braking.
