Slight burning smell

Hi Guys,

Lately my car has been having a slight burning smell and i cant seem to identify where its coming from.

Its not an electrical smell more like metal or plastic.
Not throwing any codes.

Can this be from bad wheel bearing? I do suspect at least one of mine need to be replaced.

Any other typical places i should check?

Thanks!

Dragging brakes? Could be bearing, yes.
I was thinking of that too.
when i lift my car this weekend ill check for brake drag as well.

I did check my rotors tho after a drive and none of them seemed excessively hot.
