On my way to work this morning I started getting a clicking sound every time I depressed and let off the front brake.
I didn't have time to really go over the bike once I got to work.
Tried applying sideways pressure on wheel to see if the wheel bearing is going bad.
Didn't notice anything with the brake pads.

Try soap, water, and a toothbrush to the rotor mounting bolts. Brake dust can build up on them, causing the rotor to not be able to 'float' as it should.
Hope this helps, Dave

How many miles on the bike?
The steering head bearings will make a click sound when the front brake is first applied.
Usually means the bearings need adjusting or replacing.
Replace steering head bearings @ 31k miles on my '06 Ulysses.

There is a click when I apply the brake and when I release it.
It just started this morning.

Check that your caliper bolts have not loosened.

Teeps is probably correct. Had to change mine out before 30000 miles. I would try to adjust them first.
Loosen your lower tree fork clamps.
You may have to move or remove the handlebars.
Loosen the clamp bolt on the adjusting cap nut.
Loosen the adjusting cap nut.
Retighten and torque to 40 ft./lbs.
Tighten the clamp bolt for the cap nut.
Retighten lower tree fork clamps.
Install or adjust the handlebars.
