Default Brake Noise

Hey guys well I think the title explains it, i'm having a bit of brake noise from my passenger side rear brake. Also intermittent lights from traction control and ABS.

It sounds like its a wear indicator but the pads are newish semi metalic pads that came with the car also new brake rotors. No cracking or any other problems with the pads I last checked them about a month ago. What's throwing me off is the sound stays pretty constant no matter the speed, until about 50 when it fades away. I'm going to bleed the brakes and put some CRC brake quiet and see what happens. I know its not a wheel bearings (because I just replaced them) and I don't think its a bad caliper because it does go in when I try to reinstall it (not that that is definitive).

I'm looking for other opinions, also what direction should the wear indicators be on? facing the front or what? I don't know this information since the car was bought used so it would be handy.

Make sure you are adding lube to the slide pins, also on the hardware. Every metal to metal contact point has to have lube on it. Also look at your abs sensor, a lot of the time they will build up metal shavings, clean them and see if it helps.
