Noise from rear drivers side 2007 optima

This is sort of an odd thing. Started this past weekend.

Backed out of drive, braked, put in drive and accelerated normally. Heard this noise, kind of a medium pitched scrapping noise from the rear driver's side wheel. Stopped after maybe driving 30ft. Got to my destination, parked. Five hours later, got in the car, and same thing.

This only happens right when I first drive, and it doesn't happen after normal stops at lights and such. Only after the car has been sitting a while. Seems to drive fine, good power, no 'brake' smell of anything. IT has been very humid here, and rainy..the car sits outside, and doesn't get a lot of driving many weeks.

Any thoughts? Thanks!
