Chances are the new pads hare hitting virgin areas on the rotor, which 
are rusty. Typically the innermost or outermost edges. He's right, 
probably live with it, but the rotors SHOULD be turned if they had a lip 
on either edge. Will chew up the new pads quick like. For about $10 a 
piece, get the rotors turned, and put on the new pads again... assuming 
they arent toast yet.
