You need to turn the pistons in with a special brake tool, you should be able to rent it from autozone.

If it has rear rotors take the wheel off remove the 2 bolts on the caliper use small pry bar to pull caliper off remove old pads take note inboard and outboard pad placement use a c clamp or large plyers to push the piston of the caliper all the way back in replace or have rotors turned reverse proceedure to reinstall. Be sure to take the brake master cyl cap off before pressing caliper piston back. If you have drum brakes take the tire off remove drum you may have to beat it off of both sides. STOP. Take one side off at a time and use the other side for reff. to reinstall everything. It will be the same just reverse. Dont take anything off the other side you will forget trust me. Turn drums or replace. reinstall all. Note buy some brake cleaner 2 cans should do to clean shoes and parts as you do the job. Be sure on the calipers to lube the slides the caliper slides on (pins) and if drums lube the contact spots where the shoes touch the backing plate. Pump brakes up before you take the car out of park and gently ease off the brake. Make a couple hard stops to "brake in" the brakes.

I doubt it has anything to do with the transmission.
When the brake pads wear most have a wear sensor that drags along the rotor.
Have you pulled the wheels and checked the brake pads ?
