Sounded like I had a flat today but I didnt

So this is the 2nd time in a row its happened.

I leave and I hear this rotational sound that almost sounds like a flat tire like sound and I can kind of feel it with my left foot throught he flooring.
I pulled over and its defintely not a flat and the car doesnt pull to one side at all.
After driving a few miles the sound went away.

Anyone have any idea what this could be?

Where does your car sit at night? Was it sitting for a couple days before this happened?

Could be a flat spot on the tire that goes away after it warms up.
