Question Squeak - stops when gently apply brake?

Greetings!
Had my 03 TJ a year and luv it. Since I bought it I noticed a loud squeak just when I start rolling -worse in cold weather. It lasts at minute or two in parking lot speed and I'm not overly concerned - its a jeep and noise is part of the deal.
Just want to see if anyone has ideas of what could be causing it. Seems to cease when I ease gently on the brake and its not there at all when I pick up speed. Any ideas thoughts welcome.

Also, apologies to Jeep wavers - was not sure of etiquette but now on board.
Cheers!

Hey Irish, I actually have had this noise pop up again in the past week. I had it a long time ago and fixed it (though I don't seem to remember how???) but, I would start with your pads as mentioned, thats the most likely place. Is the noise front or rear?

The noise is from the front - a few revolutions of the front wheels until they seem to warm up and I gain speed.

Mine comes from the rear it's like a slow squeaky hamster wheel until it "heats up" and goes away. Any fixes yet?
