Default 1997 ranger 4.0 brake issue?

I was wondering if anyone would know anything about brake systems in a 97 ford ranger 4.0 4x4. Some times when i press the brake pedal down sometimes it will grind and make noises and the abs light will go on. Then some other times it wont do it. It does it sometimes when i barely put any pressure on the brake pedal. I was wondering if any one would have any advice for me about whats wrong with it.

Pads are worn out.
Rotors are warped or bearings failing.
Possibly bad power brake hoses.
there's alot more to it but that's it in a nutshell.
Have fun.
