Nothing to much too worry about, I had the same in my car.
Something to do with the brakes slightly touching the discs and going in the opposite direction they are used to.

One thing to check which I never thought of at the time is to see if the pads are properly seated, when I came to change the rear pads, one pad wasnít in its correct position so it was tilted at an angle against the disc. My pads were probably good for a few thousand more miles at the time so yeah itís good to check these things on second hand cars

To add, it is also when i press the brake or handbrake and then lettinf the clutch coming up and giving some gas. So not sure id it are the brakes is the tires arent turning.
