Sounds like a rear caliper is sticking. Try spraying some lube around the
external portions of the rear caliper pertaining to the E brake, and work
the e brake a bunch and see if it goes away. Usually some lube will fix it,
although I have seen one or two calipers that could not be fixed and had to
be replaced. Don't get lube on the rotors and pads though.
