Its just grit in between disc and pad. If there plenty of meat on the pads just ignore it, go out and brake hard a few times when its safe. If theyre a bit thin then put new ones one.

For christs sake don't put grease on your discs

take off wheel,
remove the two caps that cover the two caliper retaining bolts. remove the caliper. take out the pads. brush all the caliper components. check the thickness of the pads, if less than 4 mm i recommend getting a new set. smeer some copper grease on the points where the back of the pads touches the caliper. push the piston back so the caliper can go back on (if using new pads). put the retaining bolts back in. and tighten up to the correct torque setting. put the caps back on. and spray with some brake cleaner to make sure any oil/dirt/grease is off the disk.

jobs sorted

while the pads are out lay some 60 grit sand paper on a flat surface and rub the pad along it untill the glaze on the pad has gone, then continue with the above.

the sqeaking is due to the shit materials they use as there not allowed to use asbestos anymore
