Default Brake Dust, Very Uneven Buildup

So I have an 07 with 7k on it. The front right wheel is black after a week cause of the brake dust while the front left barely has any. I have take the front right off once but any reason the are wearing so differently? Is the wheel to tight or loose?

When you brake, does the car pull to one side?

If it was me, I would take each set of pads off one at a time and measure the pad material left. It does sound like one caliper is grabbing more than the other. This could be because of a few things.

It could even simply be that one pad is dusting more than the other.
