Start with jacking it up and turning your tires by hand and see if any feel like they are sticking, if one or more is then you could have a seized up caliper or pad issue on that wheel. Check the rears to because it could be your ebrake sticking as well.

As for the loss of power it could be the brakes dragging. Could be a clogged fuel filter or even bad fuel from sitting.
