Loud squeal pressing brake pedal when stationary

I'm (GTV Cup #69, 34K miles) starting to get a loud, sharp squeal from the first touch of the brake pedal when stationary - usually when preparing to set off. Generally it happens at the start of the journey and after that all seems fine - I'm not (yet!) noticing any degradation of braking performance, but I'm guessing the noise can't be good!

Any idea as to how urgent / serious / expensive this is likely to be?

Vacuum leak? Can you hear it when driving? Maybe not over the sound of the V6.
