Seized caliper?

Took a quick drive to pick up some lunch today and as I got out of the car I noticed my passenger side front wheel was absolutely filthy with brake dust. The other 3 wheels are virtually spotless, car was washed less than a week ago. The car isn't pulling to one side, i have no problems rolling in neutral, don't smell any brakes, etc. What do you guys think, seized caliper? I'm going to jack it up when I get home and inspect it.

Check the pads. They will tell the story.

I would just take it to the dealer and let them give you a loaner / take care of the issue. Hopefully nothing to bad.

Checked the pads out and there doesn't appear to be any uneven wear....at least on the pads on the outside of the rotors. I did notice, however, that the passenger side wheel is hotter than the other three after a drive. Not too hot to touch, but noticeably warmer. The rotor itself felt about the same temp as the driver's side. I might shoot it with an IR thermometer for a more accurate result. Cleaned the wheels today and I'll keep an eye on it. Maybe I'm getting some dragging on that side.
