    First - don't drive the car - have it towed to a repair facility, probably the one that replaced the brakes.

    A leak should be pretty visible from any of the hydraulic components, so a good physical inspection is in order.

    Whoever changed the pads might have loosened the brake fluid hose by mistake and didn't tighten it up well or the it lost it's thread since it's a screw very tight to loosen up. I woulf take the car back to whoever did it
