Brake Trouble! Help!

I keep having repeat problems with my car's brakes. There always seems to be something wrong with the brakes. I bring my car to my mechanic to look at the brakes, they make a few "adjustments" (not sure what exactly), don't charge me anything, the brake's seem to work fine for a while then the parking brake light starts to randomly come on and off more and more frequently the more I use the car. Eventually, it's on for miles at a time and also causes the "tripometer" to reset back to zero miles randomly.

- Plus, the ABS doesn't seem to be working properly and my right rear brakes will lock up if I try to stop on loose gravel or sometimes if the road is wet.

- Plus there's ALWAYS a combination of screeching and/or grinding noises coming from my brakes.

- Plus, I'm pretty sure I have a warped rotor now somewhere.

Really tired of always having brake problems. Any help/advice???
