Raise the front one wheel at a time and see if you can move the wheel any. If you have play in it, it's probably the wheel bearings.

If you aren't comfortable with mechanic work, I would have those replaced at a shop. They can be a little difficult if you're not used to dealing with it.

Hope this helps,

an addition to what Bob said, your bearing will usually make a humming noise, mostly when turning, but straight as well. If not the bearings, it could be the CV joints.
