Some cars have a "noise maker" to warn you that your brake pads are worn out.
Looks like you may need new brake pads. You can get someone to look at the calipers to check the thickness of the pads.
Hope this helps.
To address your first problem squeaking brakes aka "brake squeal", is most often casued by one or 2 things: "Pad vibration" or a "low brake warning sensor".
Pad vibation is usually caused by ineffective pad anti-rattling clips & hardware that allow the pads to vibrate at a super fast speed whenever the brakes are applied, thus causing a high pitch brake squeal. To correct this, replace all the pad hardware and anti-rattling clips and make sure you use a quality pad set that has anti-rattling plates attached to the backs of them. Weather conditions do affect brake squeal, that is why it seems to be worse at times.
Low brake warning sensor squeal occurs when your brake pads reach the point of replacement, the sensor attached to the pads scrapes on the rotor which produces a high pitch squealing sound to warn you it's time for new pads.
As far as your second problem goes (a knocking sound), I'll need more information about the problem before I can offer a possible cause (eg. happens on left or right turns, while going over bumps, at high or low speeds, accellerating...).
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.
The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
