I just noticed that part of the post. That doesn't sound right unless the car was being driven pretty hard. It's possible a front caliper is dragging, but that should only affect one wheel. You may want to try jacking up the wheel and seeing if it turns freely right after the car has been driven. If both wheels are dragging, it could be an issue with the master cylinder.
