Have you removed the calipers and rotors?
The actual pads do ride against the rotor, this is normal, they just do not have pressure on them so that the rotors will "Free-wheel" until you apply brakes.
If your pads are "gone" and the rotor has deep "Gashes" or circles cut in them, from the metal coming thru the pads. This ain't good!
If the rotors are not too thin, or will not be too thin, when machined (turned), they are reusable
If they are/ will be too thin, they will have to be replaced. They are usually stamped with a minimal safe thickness.
If all is good! Use brake "Quiet-ner" on the backs of the pads to keep the squeaky away!---It's available at the auto parts store, I recommend you use it!
Insure your caliper are "Seated" properly when you install them and they are not "c. Ocked" or in a bind. If you are an amateur at this, do one side at at time, so you can reference the other for proper installation.
Let us know how it goes or if you need more assistance.
