Sometimes just sitting overnight the rear pad can rust to the rotor enough
that it "pops" free the first time you back out.  Usually you can tell
as there will be an imprint of the pad on the rotor if you immediately
after hearing the noise.

Otherwise check the suspension for any wear/looseness and maybe the ball
joints (which can make a pop sound under certain circumstances if worn)
