New pads and rotors noise?

I have new pads and rotors in the front, and they are making a loud squeak and metallic noise when slowing down, usually around 15mph and under. Usually when warmed up.

Is this something that will go away, or is something perhaps wrong?

It's the pads vibrating. Simply remove the pads, put a thin layer of Brake Quiet on the back. Let it dry for about ten minutes at room temp. Reinstall pads. No more noise.

You might get a bit of smoke/burning smells as the Brake Quiet gets hot for the first few times, this is normal and nothing to get alarmed about.
