Squeaky brake

I noticed my front brake squeaking slightly today. What might this squeak indicate? Major issue?

Might want to check and make sure your calipers are releasing and not binding. Excessive heat would indicate frozen caliper. If thats not the issue you can try the pad isolators ( liquid type) on the back of the pads. Also make sure you have decent amount pad remaining.
