Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Could be a handbrake adjustment.
With a normal handbrake, you can remove some screws around the handbrake covering. The screws are sometimes well hidden so you have to look around.
When you get the covering off, there are two adjusting nuts at the rear of the handbrake. Turn the nuts until you can get "5 clicks" on the handbrake to set the brakes.
Some jack up the car while doing this so they can rotate the wheels by hand to feel when the brakes touch the pads.
Hope this helps

I would guess your master cylinder is not retracting all the way.

if you are using ceramic brake pads instead of semi-metalic you will wear out you rotors quickly
replace your brake pads with semi-metalic ones

SOURCE: Hi, two months ago low
Take it to a shop which has a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, have them put on the lift. The leak will be apparent as it will be a wet recent stain. Then you will know if you are looking at a brake line fix, a leaking master or slave cylinder.
Do not blame the guy who did the pads 10 months ago, anything he did wrong would be immediately apparent and would not take 8 months to show.
