I have that with my rear right side drum. I sprayed it with brake cleaner and it stopped for a while. I think its that Metal spring that holds the pads together.

________________________________________
Condition

Some customers may comment on a squeak noise when the brake pedal is applied or when released. This noise is normally heard when the brake pedal is slowly applied with the engine on or off, but can occur when the brake pedal is released. The noise may be isolated to the master cylinder area.
________________________________________
Correction

To correct this concern, remove as much of the old brake fluid from the master cylinder as possible and refill with a new DOT 3 brake fluid, P/N 88862806 (in Canada, use P/N 88862807). Start the vehicle and fully cycle the brake pedal until the noise diminishes to allow the new fluid to enter the system.

Not exactly sure if this works tho... or even if this is the same issue... but sounds almost the same
