if u have not touched the lines

pump the pedal a few times
this will bring the pads and pistons to the disc with the right clearances

if you can afford it... get an Ellery's manual from Repco or an auto store... they cover all this kinda basic mechanical stuff very clearly for beginners They are about $40 i think
