Post First time MB owner / noise in front right side

My parents had a MB years ago but this is my first. I bought this MB 300E from a guy who had loaned it to a friend of his, and it didn't drive right afterwards. After I got it home I went over it and noticed that the parking break was set to the floorboard. I pulled the release lever and the engine began to run much better immediately. I now have a noise from the right passenger side. I'm thinking it's the brakes!! LOL. Apparently the guy who sold it didn't see the parking brake was set and I got it for a steal.... $600.00 He said that was what he had in it and he'd be happy just to get that back. It has had some other problems but that was the major obstacle. The rest is just cleaning up after the guy and some of his workers tried to "fix" it.

Thanks. That's what I thought because of the noise. The brake pad shield or just worn out pads.
