Well in occured at a low speed, do you know how much damages will cost. There was no damage to my car, but his cars bumper paint peeled off and it kind of crushed very little. We exchanged some information, but no insurance information yet. Is this going to cost a lot of money you think?

The person behind has the right to be annoyed that the lead driver stopped abruptly, but the simple fact is, you're responsible for hitting the car in front of you in the situation you described.

The grinding noise is the brakes pads proably the noise is in the front. The front brake pads are easy to replace and is a do it yourself sort of thing. My guess is your brake light is coming on because of this condition. I assume your brake light has been coming on for a little while now.
