Squealing brakes

I replace the front rotors and pads about a month ago. Replaced with NAPA budget rotors and ceramic pads. I get a squealing when applying the brakes, mainly at a slow speed. I have removed them and cleaned the rotors and applied brake quiet stuff on the back of the pads but still get a squeal. Now, when braking hard, it pulls left which I believe means that the right caliper is sticking? I pulled it off and cleaned the caliper with brake cleaner and installed but no change to the sound or pulling. What is my next move?

Also, it sounds like my rear left brake is squealing as well. Is this normal for drum brakes? The jeep is a 2006 with 37k miles.
