2001 honda civic lx

Hi I just bought a used 2001 honda civic lx, after 4 days I noticed that there is a squeling noise whenever I step on the gas pedal. I brought it back to the dealer and they replace it with a honda brake pads. they said that the cause of the noise is beacause the pads on the front is not a honda brake pads that's why it making that noise. after they change it on my way home i heard that noise again but not as loud as before. it was making that noise whenever I step on the brakes with a medium force. If I step on it with a very light or very hard there is no noise on it. I wan't to get rid of that noise please help......
