If so then it will more than likely be the surface rust on the discs being cleaned off by the pads, the noise should stop after you have used the brakes once or twice.

The speed at which the discs will turn rusty depends on a few things, if the car stands outside, if the discs are visible through the wheels, if its raining etc.

If you don't use the car everyday the discs will have more surface rust on them so the scraping noise can sound worse until it gets cleaned off.

Thanks mate, think you are right noticted dose nearly go completely when not wet.
