You most likely have pad build up on the rotors. Did you change anything recently? In any case, the best way to resolve is to re-bed the pads. Find an open road with no one around where you can do a series of hard stops from 60 -70 mph (faster if you can get away with it)...get the fronts hot (I mean really hot). From there, drive on a highway or such where you do not use the brakes while letting them cool. Your pads should be bedded and no more pulsing.

I'm assuming you have OEM pads btw...track pads are really important to bed properly.
