Discs/pads should be changed in pairs on the same axle, changing just one side is poor practice and can lead to brake imbalance. If you go for a reasonable length of drive and then feel the rear alloy wheels do they feel excessively hot? This could indicate binding brakes but shouldn't really be happening on a car as new as yours!
