Squeaky sound from right rear!

Hi all,
I have a sound coming from right rear that stops when brake is applied. I assume it's the wheel that is the culprit and it's not surprising that my imagination has me convinced that the rotor is distorted and the callipers are rubbing, when I'm slightly less dramatic, it's the callipers just needing a wee adjustment.
Just so I sound vaguely like I know what I'm talking about when I speak with the workshop, does anyone have a similar experience or useful suggestions?
Many thanks.
