Screaching when I put in drive after parking on incline....Brake issue? Help.

I'm experiencing a weird issue. (happened maybe 3x in 4mos)
I park my car on a slight incline. After it's sat for at least 12hrs and I back out of the driveway - I'm good- BUT- When I put it into drive and start moving it makes a noise on the passenger side that I've been told sounds like the screaching of a dead animal I'm dragging on the road. After a minute or so whatever it is resolves itself- but I'm baffled.
Is it brake issue?
Something worse?
All help is appreciated.

Also- are the drums in the rear or disc brakes?

Thanks!

Possibly a rock in the wheel?

Usually the problems of that is your brake. Try to check the horn as well and if it is needed to change it, you have to do that. It is better to drive your car safely and comforatable. Not only the problem some features of your car to check, but its better to check all the features before it drives.

May be something as simple as rust forming on the rotors when it sits that long.

Bare steel and moisture and you'll have a micro thin coating of rust. Brake pads will squeal to high heaven for a bit until the rust is worn off.

Can really be seen after a rain storm and then the jeep sits overnight.
Just roll the jeep forward a couple of inches and you'll see a nice shiny spot where the pads were sitting on the rotor, the rest of the rotor will have a dull look to it.
