Default brake pads sticking- wheel bearings maybe?

just installed a new set of rotors because my others ones were grooved to hell. changed all the pads in the rear and drove about 100 feet only to notice, the passenger rear
pads were "screeching"...is there any reason why the caliper would not retract? or maybe my bearings are gone and making my rotor to wobble and scratch the surface of my pads? any info would be great...also if anyone can chime in on how to spot a bad bearing that would be great(do bad bearings only become noticable at high speeds or are they felt during slight accelaration as well?)

pull the caliper off? by shims you mean the brackets that attach to the rotors right? the backing plate thing makes sense let me check that as i think it might be bent .
