Brake noise only on first application

My 2006 Subaru Outback makes a funny noise when I set out each morning. At the first intersection I turn either left or right and apply the brakes gently. The brakes make a brief “clunk” which I feel in the pedal. They work fine and never make the noise or feel again! Any thoughts?
