Default Brakes squeak

It rained last Saturday night/early Sunday morning. I only drove from home to work , work to home on Tuesday night. I drove home to work and work to home tonight. Whenever I first pull out of my spot at work on Tues night and tonight, I've heard the brakes squeak.

I'm not sure if the brakes are still wet or if my brakes need looked at. After the one or two times that I use my brakes when first leaving work on Tues and tonight, was only time I heard the squeaking. So I don't want to panick and take the car in again for the brakes for no reason again. I'm hoping my brakes are just still wet. But I have little tiny bit of doubt.

The beginning of January (Of this year.) I had my brakes checked and they were okay.

Often in extreme wet conditions the rotors will get a little rust on them over night or nights. This causes initial squeal or a squeak. Nothing major to worry about.

My car is outside all the time. Two weeks ago, it snowed a lot on
a late Saturday night/early Sunday morning and last Saturday night with the rain. It's weird because I just hear the squeak/squeal once or twice after leaving work and never hear it again (or it's never loud enough for me to hear it again).

But I'm glad it's nothing major to worry about. Thanks.
