use it! get it hot, and worn some.

"Squeeks" are caused by vibrations between the rotor and the pads, and in this case, since both are brand new, they aren't perfectly matched up yet, as far as being worn together to be perfectly smooth.

Ride the rear brake some, get it hot, let it cool, get it hot. Shoot some brake cleaner in there, and it will eventually go away.

This is the number one complaint of new brakes, they squeek. And they will until you wear them evenly and they mesh with the rotor.
