weird dragging noise

my SVT focus as of today has this noise that usually is only heard when i first start out driving and at low mph's, like 5-20mph. it kind of sounds like its metal being dragged but i looked and had nothing underneath. i guessing its something with the wheel/axle area. it goes away after a couple minutes of driving, like it is warmed up or something
could it be like a wheel hub or something similar?

I think i'm experiencing this to. mine started out like that and now it sounds bad for almost 10 minutes of driving. I think it's the passenger motor mount. I'll be replacing that soon. I'll let you know if it works.
