BMW 320D 05, squeaky brakes

Recently purchased 2nd hand, full NCT until next May but have noticed the brakes are a bit squeaky fro time to time.

Problems?

If the brakes appears to work as they should I wouldn't worry.
Do you know when they were last changed?
Is there any smells, or heat, from the wheels?

This could be any number of things.

What does the brake wear indicator say in the on-board computer? It should tell you how many miles/km you have left until they need changing.

It's also possible that when the pads were last changed there wasn't any copper grease put on the back of the pads to prevent brake squealing.

The pad may also have become a little loose from its carrier and is rubbing.
