Generaly speaking, if you're getting about 2 years out of a set of pads, then you're doing ok. The grinding you're hearing is the pad material wearing off to the metal backing of the pad due to normal wear. Also make sure you do a caliper service and clean and lube the slide pins, as well as the saddle where the pads sit in the bracket.

My 2000 ford mustang gt v8 make a sweeky noise in the rear tires after even after changing rear brakes and shocks.

The squeaky noise can be several things, but usually it's how your pad contacts the rotor provided it's rear disc. Check the caliper slides, if it's not sliding back and forth, you'll wear the inboard side pad and it will squeak.

How do i know if my master cylender is bad?

A classic example of a failing master cylinder is the brake pedal fading(going to the floor) while sitting in traffic,i.e. at a stop light. Brakes are nothing to second guess though.Let a mechanic make the diagnosis.
