Brakes/wheel issue

Hey y'all... I have a 2008 Pontiac Solstice... 55K miles on it and no trouble until now with the brakes/wheel... About a week ago the "BRAKE" light came on and in the info thing it said "brake fluid needed" I put brake fluid in, but I have to pump my brakes about 3 times for them to work (still)... Also, when I turn the wheel of my car to the right it makes a high pitch squealing noise and when I do it to the left it makes a grinding noise or almost like the sound of going over gravel/dirt.

I would take the wheels off of the car and check all of the brakes visually for damage. Then also do a fresh brake bleed on the entire system to make sure you do not have any air in the system.

The grinding noise could be a lot of things, but take a look at the brakes with the wheels off and let us know what you see.
