Most likely the noise you are hearing is a dry wheel bearing. Try this step first, raise and support the front wheel off the ground (on the side maiking the noise). Then, with the wheel suspended, slowly turn the front wheel (rotate) on the front axle / spindle - and listen closely for the clicking sound - especially in the center of the hub. Often, a dry bearing is more pronounced at slower speeds / revolutions.

Try the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.
