When i start biking, my crank always creeks, is this due to the old bottom bracket?

most likely stuff needs to be greased/re-torqued, pull the cranks and BB, clean everything, grease the bb shell, put the bb back in and torque it to spec, if using isis/splined w/e grease the BB spindle if square taper de-grease the spindle and cranks, and attache crank arms and torque to spec, if external bearings, well put em back on
