Brake and Steering Squeal

Today, I tracked my car for the first time, it was a L1 course for the day, and to be honest, my car wasn't driven THAT much, maybe a total of 2 hours, and this is with breaks and what not in between. The point is, on my way home, and as of now, my brakes squeal when I apply them LIGHTLY, and the same sounding squeal occurs when I am maneuvering the steering wheel at low speeds. Does anyone know what can be done to get rid of this, it sounds terrible when I'm braking, or in a parking lot maneuvering...

Thanks

Start by checking the fluids and level in both your power steering and brake lines. Then get back to us. When was the last time either two were serviced? How hard did you drive and brake in the car? Might be as simple as a fluid flush for the systems.

I'll need to go check the levels, but I know they were serviced less then 4 weeks ago when I bought the car.

No sound at all regardless of your speed if you keep it in a straight line without braking?

Correct, no sound what so ever while driving straight, however, when I start to turn right (only right, left doesn't do it) under 30 MPH it squeals, brake, it squeals.
