Worried about brakes

Hi all

A few weeks ago i had my disks and pads changed privately, when the guy was down i watched him do the work while i was chatting to him and all seem ok.

Now normally there is a little bit of play in the brake pedal before I feel the bite of the brakes, but over the past few days ive bene feeling and noticing that as soon as i touch the brakes they are biting straight away.
The best way to describe it is it feels like there is something swidgy stuck between the pads and the disks (i know there isnt though lol)

When i first start the car and start moving the brakes feel normal, then after a short while they go back to feeling hard and they dont feel right.

I could be me over reacting, ive checked the brake fluid and the levels are fine.

Is it me worrying over nothing or is there something else going on?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: forgot to mention I have a V reg Megane 1.6 16v Sport Coupe
