this genereally means that the left front caliper is siezed. if it pulls to the right then your right side is working fine, its the left you need to worry about. as a rule when it comes to brakes, what you do to one side you do to the other. so if you replace the left caliper, then i would suggest to do both of them. and don't forget to bleed the brakes.
