Yup its a known issue bad Strut bearings seals , Mine does it too.
Sounds like an old ship skweeeek, Normally after backing and turning on the forward motion.
Mine started not even six months after I got her, It comes and goes.
Water , salt and gunk gets into the defective bearing and she squeaks.
Pop the rubber off the top of the strut look carefully notice the very slight rust residue on the edge of the washers?
All of this could be easily avoided with a grease nipple, but no, not the cars these days, no nipples anymore...
Cars today as designed as 'disposable cars'
However clunking is a more serious issue, get things looked at right away if the well is moving or twisting with the strut.
