Have your rear brakes checked the squeaking is most likely the wear indicators on the pads rubbing against the rotor. Why does the noise go away when you apply your brakes all depends on how much the indicator is rubbing against the rotor. Noise most likely goes away because pressure is being applied to brake. Kind of hard to explain but just have your brakes checked.
