Brake Noise F-53

I recently bought a 2005 Scottsdale on a Ford chassis with 13k miles. The brakes perform well but the power assist makes a high pitched whistling noise while stopped with my foot on the brake pedal. Is this normal?

You may have electric assist brakes. Look at the master cylinder and if there is a electric motor attached, that will be what you are hearing.
