I'm having front brake squeal when NOT applying them!

When I put it up on the centerstand and spin the wheel it
has the normal slight rubbing sound then when it slows down it squeals. After a stop sign it squeals when I take off and when I turn it squeals. Man it sure is worrying me. It's not super loud but someone walking down the sidewalk can hear it.

Does this sound like one of the dreaded bad discs?
I'm taking it in to have it looked at under warranty. :???:

Hi Block
Strip the pads out and smear BRAKE grease on the backs refit.Should cure.ON NO CIRCUMSTANCES USE COPPER SLIP.Many do but copper and aluminium should not be used together.It causes electrical action VERY BAD.This can back off bolts and other fixings.
