slight squeak when starting car or moving gear selector

Car has done this for a while, but am not sure if it could lead to a bigger problem which is why I want to get some advice.

Sometimes when I start the car it will give a quick loud squeak once it's fired into life, and sometimes when I move the gear selector it will squeak then too.

Also on low revs, especially idle, the car likes to cut out altogether, but I can sometimes prevent that if I'm quick enough by giving it more revs, it will squeak then too as it's thinking about cutting out on me.

Anyone have any ideas?
