Hello - most likely the squeal you hear is a "wear warning" for the front brake pads. This is a tiny metal tab on the brake pad that is designed to touch the brake rotor when the brake pads are nearing their "worn out" condition. This prevents metal-on-metal wear, which ruins the brake rotor, and makes brake repair significantly more important. To confirm this diagnosis, and provide guidance on scheduling brake pad replacement, I would recommend a brake inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
