High pitch droning sound

There is a metal tab on some pads that contacts the rotor to make hideous noises telling the driver they need to replace the brake pads. It's in your owner's manual.

I have a 2006 Pontiac G6, while driving down there road i get a very high pitched squealing noise that goes away when i apply brake pressure. when i let off the brake it begins again. brand new...

This is the brakes making the noise, it may be a problem and brakes may have worn down to the warning arm which makes the same noise you are hearing. i would have the brakes checked if its due to a low pad you will do damage to the new rotors.good day.

While driving I get a very high pitched squealing noise coming from my car. as soon as i hit the brakes the noise goes away, when I let off of the brake the noise comes back, sometimes it sounds different...

Well, your description sounds like disk brake issue(s). There is a wear indicator that acts exactly like what you describe, if the pads are worn, they need replacement.
If pads are good, you may need "mechanic in a can" stuff that goes between the METAL parts of the pad and it's mounting. Look for rust, as that is a likely area. This goop does not go on surfaces that need to move against one another, those areas need high temperature grease, a small amount.

My 2001 lhs has a high pitch noise

Check the belts and if they are over 4 years old, replace them. This is probably the issue.
