Brakes Grinding Intermittently

My front brakes are coming up be being due for service (about 2,900 miles indicated remaining), however the pads still look like they have some life left in them.

My problem is that I have started to get an intermittent grinding noise when breaking. It happens at least once on every drive but doesn't seem to be related to peddle pressure. The rotors definitely seem worn and I will probably replace them with the pads but there are no gouges or grooves on the surface that I would generally attribute to grinding a worn out pad into the rotor. The low pad sensor has also not been tripped.

My car is still under CPO. Should I get it checked out or does this sound at all normal and I should just replace the pads and rotors.

Any help would be appreciated.
