Wheel started squeaking a little while back, maybe 2 months ago, i got car serviced, new brake pads, etc.

Wheel is still squeaking, no idea what it is, maybe the bearings? Brake pads are about 2-3 weeks old. I think its only the front right.
Squeaks nearly all the time, sometimes it stops, squeaks when im goin 10km/h or 100km/h doesn't matter.
Heres a video i recorded, sounds exactly like that, any ideas?

give everything a spray with wd40 wheels brakes that should fix the squeaks
Mate are you ok in the head? WD 40 on brakes? They'll slip like a mofo, pad will barely if at all bite the rotor!

Cause lubricating a part that is designed to slow the entire car through friction is a bright idea...

lol @ spraying lube on brakes.

Does the noise go away when you apply the brakes?

This is probably caused by the pads chattering, there is something like hi temp silicone that
can be applied to the back of the pads where they contact the caliper piston.
Repco or a good brake repair workshop should be able to supply it.

Also check the pads are fitted correctly, there are flat spring bits riveted to the pads, one of these may not be sitting
in correct position and may be rubbing on the disc

Yeh the noise stops when I brake.


Edit.
Also, my mate said when i gun it, my car smells weird, he said it smelt like the stuff you out on an exhaust to get fingerprints off or something?
Is that anything to worry about?
