GRINDING NOISE FROM BRAKES

1999 Ford Focus • 10,000 miles

I have replaced the brake discs but not the pads and getting a grinding sound when slowing down and putting a bit of pressure on my brakes. And gets louder when I have nearly stopped and when I just start moving again. The pads have plenty of miles left on them. And wondered is there away of seeing if the calibra is working ok. All was ok untill I changed the brake discs could you help
