brakes :/

well i just did my brakes and used centrics rotors, and mintex pads...(all around...4 new rotors/pads)

its been over 500 miles now, and the past week or so ive been hearing a squealing noise...at first i thought it was something else but im back to thinking its the brakes again...

it seems like it only squeels when im totally stopped and then start to go...so at first i though it could be my clutch, but my clutch is less than a year old so i was like wtf! then when my clutch was totally dis-engaged i heard the squeal again so i was thinking it was the brakes...

im not 100% sure if it is the brakes but was wondering why my new brakes would squeel like this when i ffirst start going?

i was thinking if the brake caliper didnt release all the way, the pad could be touching the rotor too much

or maybe my ebrake cable is too tight and a rear rotor is touching too much..

any other things to check out to fix this squeel...?

anything else it might be?
