    Which side?

    An inner pad that wears quicker is usually caused by caliper slide pins that are sticking and need lubed.

    An outer pad that wears quicker is usually caused by a caliper piston that may be sticking, or brake hoses with some resistance in them.

    A good inspection of the calipers and related hydraulics is a good idea.
