Water pump leaking causing belt squeaking. Will replace.
Something very similar was happening to me. Just driving last summer when my low coolant light came on. Could not figure out why until I had it confirmed I had a bad water pump leak. Simple fix was to replace the water pump (cost me 35$ for the part). But watch out, the coolant that was leaking started to mess up the serpentine belt and I had to get that replaced as well otherwise it completely destroy it.
