spin your pedals if they spin hard and squeak thats it if not spin your crank with out the chain on then if thats not it maybe ur chain. Trouble shoot it that will get you places.

I guarentee it's your pedals if they are unsealed. They all do this unless you clean them like once a week. dont worry aboot it.
