Well the creaking is probably a badly cut nut. As for the action, u may need to take it to a luthier as he will need to relieve all the tension. Is the neck a bit of a ski slope at the mo?

nah the neck isnt a bit of a ski slope lol. and yea i might do that, but i heard you can file down the saddles a bit to help relieve the action. is this true? anyone know?

when you give little information you're likely to get little help.
or answers that don't apply.
you didn't mention what brand and model your guitar is.
there are different types of bridges. some are adjustable in height.

another thing that affects action is excessive neck bow.
learn how to measure bow and determine if you need a truss-rod adjustment.

the creek when tuning has several possible causes.

1 - string slippage at the bridge peg.
2 - string friction at the bridge saddle.
3 - string friction at the nut.
4 - string slippage at the tuner.
5 - defective tuner.

if 2 or 3, then 'nut sauce' might help reduce the friction.
