Check wheel bearing condition and the tyres for any unbalance.

If the noise is not consistent it is not tire noise.

Bearing noise on such a new car is unlikely. This noise too would be consistent.

Check for any pebble stuck in between the brake rotors and brake pad housing. Better get it checked ASAP as your car must be in warranty. Skoda's warranty policy is funny. If they can prove that you drove around with the problem for a long time without reporting, they can deny your warranty claims.
