Squealing Noise when Driving

I hear a light squeeling noise when going about 5-10 mph. sounds like the bearing. don't hear it when driving 40+ mph. sounds louder when I first pull out in the morning form home.

Squealing noise if it's engine related is usually the idler pulley bearing.

Sounds like the front left. Again when the car is cold it's louder. Drove about 18 miles on highway. Got to my exit. Drive about 10 mph, then I hear. Then I decided to swerve left to right slightly and when I turn slight right you kinda hear it.

Does it sound like a brake pad squeal? Maybe one or both guide pins of your caliper bracket are starting to seize and glazing a pad.

Sounds like a bearing, is the center of the hub hot?
