Loud grinding noise, ABS light?

I've been hearing a horribly loud noise from the front of my car lately; I can only describe it as grinding. I can also feel the vibrations on my floorboard. As I'm driving, my ABS light goes crazy turning on and off every few seconds. For the first time yesterday, after I let off the brake at a stoplight, my traction control came on and I was unable to accelerate. I had to manually turn it on/off to get it to stop quickly. This happened a few other times as I was just driving down the road.
I need to commute from one town to another twice a week, and I'm scared to drive.
Please help!

There is not much we can tell you online other than the car must be inspected by your repair shop asap. The most common cause of a grinding sound is worn brake pads. If you are afraid to drive the vehicle, have it towed.
