Absolutely have the pads looked at!  They may be fine.  I've heard of 
brake pads squealing simply because they weren't broken in properly.  
However, even after just one year, your pads may be worn out.  Simply 
having the pads looked at should be pretty cheap, while driving on 
worn out brake pads can get pretty expensive (and unsafe).
