What makes you think it's brakes?

Two things, in my experience, makes brakes squeal. If you can apply brakes but they don't squeal until you are nearly stopped, that's benign. The sleeves and backing of the brake pads need some special high temperature brake grease. But you can live with it. But if you get a scraping, screeching sound whenever brakes are applied and possibly to a lesser extent even when they are not applied, then the brake wear feelers are touching the brake disk. You need to get brake pads or shoes replaced soon or cause damage.

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.

You are hearing the brake pad warning device. Your brake pads need replacing. Do not neglect this or you will be buying rotors as well as brake pads.

Sounds like your brake calipers are locking up your tires.I had a friend with the same car that had the same problem the next stop you should make is the auto shop.I would not drive any more until you get them looked at.Its not really the car that's warming up its your brakes one way that you can tell is if you smell a really strong odor coming from your brakes.When you put it in reverse your unlocking the brakes from the drum or disc.
