You can bed in brakes a few different ways. Some say just press your brakes while traveling down the road. Some others say speed up and slam on the brakes a half dozen times. The main thing is just to get them hot so they deposit a layer of brake material on the disc. Once the brakes are heated up, make sure you don't come to a complete stop with the brakes applied. If you stop when everything is still hot, this layer is not even anymore. So, drive around a bit until they are cooled off.
