It seems who ever did the work may have removed the power steering pump to access the water pump and timing belt. After refilling they failed to bleed the air out or possibly left a return hose loose causing the pump to **** air hence the bubbles. The brown color in the fluid may indicate they have reused dirty fluid to refill the pump. Unfortunately if you have driven any distance with the air in the pump it will most likely need to be relaced.I would call the place who did the work and register a complaint.

SOURCE: power steering noise
The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

SOURCE: steering wheel noise
have someone turn the steering wheel will the car is running so you can look to see exactly where the noise is coming from. sounds like a dry steering component.

the fluid could be burnt and the filter may need to change. You would aslo need to check the air in your tires to see if one of the front tires is low on air, then the next thing would be to check to see if a brake caliper is sticking.

Is it cold where you are? Whining sound is indication that it is starting to fail. Cold weather can make it whine also.
