Please help.. high pitch sound from the hood

hello, my car makes this very high pitch sound, yet low volume, when im driving at low speed, around 20-40 mph. it is hard to hear when i'm outside, but when i'm driving in enclosed parking lots, it's much easier to hear. the sound goes away when i step on the brakes, but it starts up again as soon as i press my foot on the accelerator. does anyone have any idea what this might be? my car is an '03 325i with about 65k miles...

Could be one of your brake pads are dragging along the rotor. Check to see if one of the pads is wearing faster then the other on the same rotor.
