Could be debrie on the bottom side of the stem, is this only on the cold side of the faucet?

Shut stop off under the sink, take apart cold side handle and stem, inspect the stem and seat area where the stem goes into, remove all debrie, before reassembly, put a towel over the faucet, now have someone hold the towel, and then turn the water on under the sink, this will flush debrie out on the line.
