Those are very light hot spots.

The pads over time will glaze if you dont push them a little hard once in a while.

You can remove the pads and run them over some sand paper to knock the glaze off. Then you can use a scotch bright pad to go around the rotors a few times to knock some glazing off them.

Thanks for the quick reply, how agressive of a scotch bright pad is acceptable for the rotors? also would 400 grit sand paper be alright for the pads. Thanks again.

the pads goal to be a little aggressive like a 120

Then the scotch bright about a green or blue pad is good.
