Question: weird sounds from car

My 2005 tiburon is making two seperate odd sounds. When I back up, it makes a high pitch sound. But stops when I hit the brakes. Second, the first 5 to 10 minutes I'm driving, I can hear this light scrapping sound coming from the driver side. I checked the exterior and under and no parts are dragging. I know I need a wheel alignment but is there anything else that could be wrong?

The scrapping noise might be related to the brakes as well. Maybe a dust shield dragging, etc.
