Squeak when Putting Car into Forth or Reverse

Hello all. Just bought a 2005 Cobalt last week. Today it was a bit cold and driving to work I noticed that when I shifted into forth it would squeak. So I stopped and same thing. Also found out it does it when putting it into reverse as well. Sound seems to come from shifter and otherwise it shifts fine.

I also get the same sounding squeak under the car on driverside when going over bumps. Same sort of sound but from different place.

Is this something I should be concerned about? Known issue? I searched site and did not really find much relevant.

what kind of "squeak" is it a metal on metal sounding? plastic rubbing metal? rubber? or the sound like something is being forced in? is it hard to shift? or does it slide in just squaks?

The Squeak is like maybe a rubber or plastic on metal sound maybe? Does not seem forced in and slides in fine. I will try to get a video after work of it and post it on here.
