Brake noise after flush

Hey everyone, was wondering if i could get some ideas as to what this new sound on my bike is. After flushing my brakes, there is a sound i can hear almost like dragging brakes when im going 60-80 km/h. The sound is like the whine noise, very subtle, when you start braking (normal sound). Its very quiet, and i felt my rotors afterward and they are not hot at all. Just barely warm.

I thought it might be because i filled up too much brake fluid, so i drained some, but the noise is still there. This noise was not present before the flush, so any ideas what it could be?

I read a sticking piston could cause this, but it does not make sense why it would come up after a brake flush... Any thoughts?
