My pearl pedal did that, I just oiled the moving parts and it stopped squeaking.

Go to a fabric store and buy some sewing machine oil to oil your pedal.

It's coming from where the spring hooks onto the beater axle. Unhook it, spit on your finger and rub it in there, just to see if that stops the squeaking. If you can find oil for bike chains or sewing machines, that will work great as a permanent lube.

And once you get into the lubrication business, take up a habit of going through each moving part of the kit periodically: chain lube for the pedals, vaseline (or equivalent) for all bolts and screws. Everything will move more nicely, and all the bolts and screws will hold better, even if it sounds a bit counter intuitive...
