Default squeaking noise while braking

i just noticed today, that my 04 accord lx sedan (51k miles w/ the original brakes when i bought my car new) has a very faint squeaking sound coming from the front right whenever i am braking and coming to a complete stop when my speed drops under ~10-15mph. i don't notice any difference in the ability to brake, or a change in the way my car stops.

anyone have any clues as to what might be happening?

inspect your brakes and make sure that they are not worn down. If they are fine, but some anti squeak on the shims

The newer honda brake pads are a really hard material[compared to early 90's] and rotor glazing is a problem, look at the rotors and if you can see yourself in the rotor it's time to have them resurfaced, as a test you can scuff them up with some 60 grit sand paper to see if the noise goes away for a day or two. Also when the pads wear down pretty far the pad material can't dissapate the heat and the pad will get cracked and cooked. I hate that high pitched sound, puts my teeth on edge and makes me want to wear earplugs. There is a service bulletin about this problem.

It should be a Ceramic Pad.

There are Organics and Semi-Metallic that works just as good, but you get a harder pad as someone stated above and more brake dust with these two.
