Question: My car wont move when in reverse.

I can shift my car with no problem in any gear. I place it in reverse and it does not move. I give it gas and it moves but only as long as i give it gas and once i take my foot off i stop. I thought i needed to change my breaks because i would hear a screeching sound every time i hit the breaks. Sounds like its metal to metal and can hear a faint scrap when driving and my foot is off the break. The car moves without a problem in drive but will not roll unless i give gas. I get oil changes every 3k miles take good care of my car because it is my life line. Has about 49k+ miles on it.
