The humming is gone but now i hear squeaking everytime i drive its repetative like every 3-4 seconds when driving 30..

Could it be brake pads being put no wrong or something that may be loose? Brake pads are 2 months new so i doubt i need new pads..

you are going to need a better description of the problem if you are going to get any help

does it increase with speed? is it constant? i assume its coming from where you installed the bearing? which wheel was that?

Driver's side.. It seems like the noise leaves when pressing on the breaks - squeak - squeak.. squeak-squeak.. everytime i drive..

The sounds doesnt get louder but the it squeeks faster when i drive faster. Sounds like the same squeeks all the time though. Applying the brakes makes the noise go away..

Sounds like the bearing is not pressed in all the way. And the rotor is hitting the pad carrier. Pop the caliper off and see if the spacing is equal inbetween the carrier on both sides.
