If theres a ridge on the the edges of the discs then you will need to drive it to get the new pads to make full contact with them.You need to be very careful though,obviously the brakes won't work 100% until they have bed-in properly.

If that still doesn't sort the situation then you may have damaged the seals in the master cylinder (did you remove the reservoir cap before pushing the pistons back in?.).
