My Nuts Are Made Of Cheese!!!

OK to start with....

The allen key bolts holding my stem/handlebars together seem to be made of what can only be described as cheese... They loosen very easily, and seem to shred before i even touch them with allen keys.
Can any one recommend any other bolts that i can use that will be stronger? i've only had the bike 5 weeks and they're pretty much knackered.

Also, if i tilt my bike while riding, say round a tight corner, my disks go "shhhhhhiinnggggg" not loud or as though there scraping but just as thought there rubbing.... this normal?

Cheers for any help,
B
