unless you opened brk line or bleeder valve there is no need to bleed.

When I press on the brake pedal it goes all the way down to the floor. So I believe they need to be bleed

OK IT TAKES 2 PEOPLE ONE INSIDE CAR AND ONE AT BLEEDER. OPEN BLEEDER THEN HAVE THE OTHER PERSON PUSH PEDAL TO THE FLOOR AND HOLD IT THERE WHILE YOU TIGHTEN BLEEDER , AFTER BLEEDER IS TIGHT HAVE THEM RELEASE PEDAL.REPEAT THIS LIKE 5 OR 6 TIMES WHILE CKING MASTER CYL TO MAKE SURE ITS STILL HAS FLUID EVERY 3RD TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS

HOW did you 'compress' the caliper pistons back in? Are pin(s) on pads aligned correctly to caliper piston? Is 'parking' brake functional ?IF any or none of these questions make sense to you , then I respectfully suggest you get it (safely) to a shop to have checked. Proper brake system function can be an important part of the driving experience.
