This is due to warped brake disks and will get worst over time, Replacing brake disks and pads is a cheap fix and the grinding noise is a noise produced when pads are beyond legal point and need changing.
the warped disks mean disks have slight bend in them and is common for many cars where brakes have been left unchanged for a long time.

This ussualy happens when the brake pads is almost totally worn out. this time you got to have your brake pads replaced.
the squueking sound is a sheet of steel that is placed on most brake pads as a warning device.

Rear brake bleeding problem

need a little more information.

if you are trying to bleed the brakes you can have someone push the pedal while you loosen the line just enough to allow air to escape. When it stops popping and cracking and only fluid comes out tighten it back up with pressure on the pedal. pump the pedal before loosening line to allow pressure to build up.

or by a vacuum pump and you can do it yourself $10-$40

Abs and traction control lights coming on

Its the abs sensor, if you encounter an ice patch or snow you won't even be able to stop because the pedal will will push back and make the rip grind noise. If you pull the ABS fuse out, you won't have ABS but you can stop and you won't have the grind noise and back pressure for now. Its safer to not have ABS when the sensor is faulty.
