Question: Brakes when I first start my car

When I first start my car and back out of my parking spot my brakes will make this sqeeking sound until I put my vehicle into drive. This is the only time that my brakes will sqeek or make this noise. I have been told that this is not unusual for the same make/model of Mercedes and that this is a problem since the car was made. I purchased this car used 9 months ago so I have no idea when this problem may have first started.
