Default bad caliper or e-brake?

Working on a family members ford fusion. I replaced the rear pads and rotors. The one rear rotor was pretty worn out. 2 weeks later I notice that the rotor is wearing out pretty bad in one spot. So I took the wheel off today to take a look. And it seems like the pads are making constant contact with the rotor. And with the brakes applied or not, they squeal. So is it a bad caliper? I put lube on the floating pins. Or is it the e-brake that is stuck? The other side is fine and doesnt have a problem. Here are some pics

i assume the floating pins move freely? and the pads slide easily with the caliper off? did the caliper depress smooth when you originally did the brakes?

The pins are bolted to the bracket and then the caliper slides on those and yes they didnt have a problem moving. So it seemed The piston was kind of a bitch to depress. It was the special tool needed kind. With the teeth and you have you spin it. Both sides went in alright.
