Welcome to car ownership.....just because you have a new car doesn't mean that the brakes won't squeak. My '19 has brake noise too. At 46,000 miles that brake pads are still at 50% or more. If you go to any other country, you will hear brake squeak all the time. For some reason, Americans are programmed that if brakes make noise, they must be bad. Sometimes it is just dirt or road grime. Sometimes it is the composition of semi-metallic brake pads. Stop making yourself crazy over something that is the "nature of the beast". That being said, if my car sounded "like a lawnmower" I would be concerned
I've had good results from taking a water hose to the brakes, just hose them down from underneath and thru the wheels to wash away the dust. Drive it cautiously until you are sure the pads are dry. You'll want to wash the brake dust off your driveway if you do this at home, leaves a mess.
