Take your wheels off and see if they are wore down. Easiest way to know for sure.

Not that fast. What kind of pads did you get? Semi-metallic will squeal a little bit. Or it could be your rotors.

Or you could have not put brake lube on them and the piston is chattering or squeeling against the shim.

I have almost 40,000 miles on my 2005 Honda Civic. The original brake pads are still on. I just started thinking about it yesterday. No noises period. When the time comes, I will let everyone know.
