Squelling Taps

I have a bathroom sink Hot water tap that works great when initially turned on, but then the water flow decrease to a near stop and it squells like heck. I am new at the plumbing aspect so this might just need a quick fix I don't know. Any suggestions.

Sounds like it needs a new washer on the end of the stem.
Turn off the water, remove the faucet handle, remove the retaining cap, and get a new washer and o-ring (if it has one) for the stem.
Good Luck!
