Whining noise between 0-40mph

The other day I heard a noise coming from my front driver side tire. It was very quiet and I didn’t think anything of it. Well it got more noticeable today. It’s basically from takeoff to about 40mph and the sound ramps up as the speed increases and only when accelerating. If I let off the gas while driving the sound goes away and it only does it while moving. If I idle and rev the sound doesn’t occur. Anything jump off the page? I’m mechanically inclined enough to change things, but diagnosing my issue isn’t my strong suit. I would guess maybe wheel bearing? Thank you in advance.

it would help to know what kind of sound. squeal, grinding, thumping, ticking ect.
also the year of vehicle.

It almost sounds like I’m driving on a tire with little to no pressure at first, (it’s around 38psi) but then the sound is more like a whine when you get up to speed.
