Default brake squeal

Hi about a week ago I put new front discs and pads on my 307sw. a couple of days ago its develop brake squeal but only when cold it disappears when the brakes have been used a couple of times after a couple of minutes of driving. Is this anything to worry about?
thanks

How many miles have you done? Don't they need a few miles to bed in first.

Did you use copper grease on the parts that need it ? that a common cause of brake squeal, no lubricant on the calipers and back of pads

I'd agree with this. I used some of those brake pads from Euro Car Parts. They came with this pad which is supposed to eliminate brake squeal and the need for copper grease, but two weeks on they started squealing, so I had to take them out, clean off the remains of the anti-squeal pads and apply grease.
