when I apply brake at the higher speed (50 mph +) the steering wheel vibrates. The car has only 29K miles. Is this a sign of worn out rotors?

it's a sign of rotor runout, also called warped rotors, it's fairly common, you can have a shop turn the rotors, or personally i replace them. newer cars tend to have smaller and thinner rotors and turning, in my opinion, doesn't work so well, if they warped once they will warp again, i would replace.

Thanks much. Do you need to replace brake pads at the same time or not?

i recommend replacement of the pads at the same time. no reason to use old pads on new rotors, the new pads will break in to the new rotors and wall will be good again.
