    I only have 2k miles on our 15 Challenger Hellcat and noticed just yesterday a loud sound when braking, the typical squeaking.

    Seems a bit early for that!

    Go 70 mph with no one behind you safe distance and do 3 hard ABS stops down to 40 mph letting them cool 1 minute or more in between and see if noise is gone. If not take to dealer.

    Performance brakes they are going to make noise from time to time. Nature of the beast.

    Best thing is to keep the wheels clean!!!! What I have noticed that cars that have brake dust caked on their wheels (like they haven't been cleaned in 2 months) squeak like crazy. I wash my wheels once a week and I never have brake noise. Obvisouly washing the wheels is getting water on the calipers to wash away all the brake dust. Try to get a rag in there and clean best as possible. Not saying that keeping clean eliminates all but I truely beleive it helps.
