I know this is kinda a weird place to be posting, but I kinda have an issue with my KHS.

Every revolution or so of the front wheel makes a high pitch -squel- kinda sound, and I have no idea how to fix this. I'm thinking it might be the disc brakes? But I honestly have no clue.
Any help is welcome

Thank you in advance,

Well obviously something is causing some sort of friction.
Try a bit of oil...that's the laziest and least intensive solution work wise.

If you think it is the brakes, take them off and see if that solves the problem, if it does replace them. If not, they are obviously not your problem.

Sounds like your rim fame is a bit bent at one spot and it's hitting the brake clamp, which could possibly be too tight.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

he said he had disc brakes.

Your brake rotor is probably bent a bit in one spot, every revolution that spot hits the pad and squeeks.

check for mud or dirt too it can cause a high pitch noise on rotation also

is it a "chink" like a metal hitting a pipe or a "squeak" like a old door hinge?

Check this first. If the discs aren't clamped properly, dirt and shit gets inside them and can cause that. Not bike threatening, but can seize it all up eventually so clean it out before you go adjusting things.
