With disc brakes and this happens it usually means in order of what to try first -
pads are ready to be replaced
need new caliper
disc is wrapped

Hi mate, I would agree a warped disc sounds likely, if not possibly part of the brake system loose. Let us know how it goes.

If the bike has very high mileage then perhaps the front wheel bearing is badly worn, causing the wheel to wobble when the brake is applied.

Also if the seal protecting the bearing failed then water(= rust) and grit could cause much bearing wear over time.
