you may need to get your caliper readjusted and a new caliper itself

I would feel safe( sight unseen) saying that you can figure on getting a new caliper for the affected wheel and because the brakes overheated so badly, even if they look ok you should replace them,,, ( obviously it's not a bearing)

As long as you have the caliper off, you may as well replace the rubber line going to it, as well.

That way, you don't have to bleed the system twice.
