Espace Mk3 brakes problems

Hi, new to the forum. I have a 2000 Grand Espace 2.2dT. The front brakes dont appear to be applying the pressure needed to stop the car with the discs not appearing clean despite some heavy use. There is also an imbalance on the braking and a strange grinding noise. This has all happened since i had some new discs fitted before Xmas. I think its the servo/master cylinder rather than the calipers. The car passed its MOT last month so any problems should have shown then.

So, after suggestions - Is there any easy way to tell whether its servo or master cylinder?

Any help much appreciated.
