Default MCS is creaking when starting from a stop

It only happens during the first 10-15 minutes of driving and it only does it when I'm starting from a stop and it isn't every time I start, maybe every couple starts. (It used to only do it when I was starting on a hill). It literally sounds like a creaking door that needs to be greased or something. Is this anything I need to worry about?

Thanks in advance

Sounds like rear suspension component. Upper rear strut mounts. One set for each side.

These can make noises when worn and compressed over time.

Until its warms up. Check you rear brake calipers, pads etc , and if the emergency brake cables are fine. If your emergency brake cables are rusted it drags on the rear brakes, pads against rotors.

My E-brake has been acting funny lately, usually you have the 4 or 5 clicks, on a flat surface i'll go to either click 2 or 3, never on 4/5 unless I'm on a steep hill (which is rare), sometimes it won't click until it gets to the 4th level, or i'll put the e brake on click 2 on a flat surface and it won't even engage, ill still roll... It freaks me out. Is it normal for the e brake to mess up sometimes?
