It will burn off but as Lagdti has said it will affect your braking efficencey, your pads may glaze thus becoming hard therefore they will not bite properly when you apply the brakes.

You could try taking the pads out and give them a light roughing up ( sanding) with some emery paper, dont forget to degrease your discs, replace your pads and take it for a drive.

Take it easy on the brakes for the first 50 miles or so
