Could be a lot of things but I would take it in and get it checked out asap, you pretty much need good brakes. [cheers]

Is there a pulsation or vibrating when there applied? My guess is something in the calipers screwed. But yea... Take that in asap. When you don't hear the knock and you have no brakes it will be too late.

betting its got more to do with ball joints or berrings

get it checked or at the least jack up the front by the axle

and shake the tire looking for play and then spin it looking for any rubbing or grinding sound
