Help, strange noise when pulling away in Car (Clutch? Brakes?) Sign In

I have recently bought a second hand Mitsubishi Colt 2006 (70,000 miles) 1.1ltr. I have noticed that sometimes when I am pulling away either in 1st or 2nd gear from stationary or slow moving I hear a strange noise. I describe it a bit like the screech when pushing a wooden chair across a wooden floor.

You can just about hear it in this video I uploaded:

I am worried it might be the clutch as in my last car the clutch broke, which is why I bought this one.

It doesn't feel like the clutch is slipping. Revs don't ever go up randomly while driving etc.

I have also heard that it might be from sticking brakes but I think it sometimes still makes the noise even if i coast to a stop and pull away again.

What might it be? Is there a cheap fix? Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't hear much in that clip of the noise?
Not sure but brakes sure could do that and suggest you check them all out anyway. Heck - you just got this car it should be all checked out even better if before you bought it but know it's status now.
Clutches etc: If you routinely go thru clutches you aren't driving it properly! Sorry - they last a looooong time up to the life of cars if driven properly to a point. If common driving is in traffic or hills all the time consider automatic transmission are much better,
