Creaking sound

Every time I brake I hear a creaking sound coming from the front of the car. Even if I break a little it still creaks. Another issue im having is when I turn the steering wheel I hear a creaking sound. Can some one please help I was thinking maybe a ball joint but I'm not sure.

Ohh ok the turning creak has been happening for about 2 months now but it was very light but as I was driving today it got annoying loud and it started to creak also when I started to break. I'll check the bearings thanks for the help
