Sometimes some road debris gets stuck between the brakepad and the rotor. That will produce a mild crunching sound. The rotor may show some mild scoring. E.g.: a small pebble or some mud can get in there.
Mud can be washed off. For a pebble you may have to take off the pad and clean it.
If your pads are totally worn and you are wearing the metal backing pad, that would produce a severe crunching sound every time you brake so that is probably not it.

Eh, who am I kidding, I didn’t dream this. I want this...
