I suspect the brake is adjusted super close on one side, and very slight movement is causing rubbing. It's also possible that the entire caliper unit is loose on the fork and moving a bit on bumps --- check this, it's important.
If the caliper is mounted securely and correctly then it's an adjustment issue, and the procedure varies withy the specific brake. Search for that info by brand and model, and follow the instructions for centering and adjusting the caliper.
