As suggested check with ur vets to rule out any medical issue. If he is physically sound then excessive barking can be due to many reasons. Boredom can be an issue. Labs r very active dogs so make sure he gets enough mental & physical excercises to burn off energies. A tired dog is a happy dog.
At this age he is becoming aware of his territory & barking at strangers is outcome of that. Proper socialization will help u control his barking. Ask some of ur friends to visit ur place. All of u ignore ur dog completely as if he doest exist as long as he barks. Approach & pet ur dog only after he stops barking. Give him a treat also. Repeat this process as often as possible. Also take him for a walk to a park or any other crowded area. Reward him for behaving calmly. Ignore him if he becomes restless. If you can manage to do all these ur dog will soon learn that by remaining calm he can earn praise & treats.
