'break-in' aka 'seating': pads to the rotors:

I simply take it easy on the brake pedal for the first 50 or so miles of use, allowing the pads to do their duty in the least stressful manner possible the event that rotor glazing has occured with the new pad/rotor (due to heavy initial use), the rotor may need to be roughed up a bit to break up the glazing

I'd suggest taking the car back to the dealer for review, they may remedy the situation swapping pads (left to right/side to side) and/or placing more anti-squeak behind the pad plates...or addressing the glazing if that is the case

ensure that you replicate the squeaky condition for the SA/ tech to observe as well, otherwise nada may occur re: corrective action

good luck and let us know what turns out
