when this light comes on, it has nothing to do with pads and rotors. it is a saftey system that is built into the brakes that stop them from locking up on panic stops.
a shop with a scan tool is needed to pull the code, check the failure and give you a bid for repair.

Is sounds like a problem in the ABS system. Dosen't matter if your brakes are new or not. A shop needs to perform a diagnostic scan to determine the issues with the ABS system and why the warnings are coming up.
