Usually with bearings I get a clicking noise, I've had that with both wheel bearings and ujoints. I always replace them before it gets worse. As for a grinding noise, could be wheel bearings I guess if they are that far gone. Could also be your ring and pinion gears. Might even be something in your transmission. Or a bad brake pad that is touching the rotor.
Need to try and figure out where the sound is coming from honestly or start poking around to see if you find something that looks wrong. lots of moving parts that could make a noise if they are not maintained or somehow got damaged. Regardless, if you're not mechanically inclined (not saying you're not) then you might as well take to a shop and let them figure it out...save yourself a lot of hassle in repairing the wrong thing.
