Brembo brake growl?

I have just acquired a new 2013 GT Premium with the Brembo brake package. The car has just around 750 miles on it so far and I am hearing and feeling in the brake pedal a low growl when the brakes are applied at freeway speeds. It is coming from the front and I would stop just short of calling it a vibration, but I am concerned it may be a problem brewing. I'm thinking of taking it out and performing the StopTech brake bedding-in procedure but not sure how effective that would be with 750 miles already on the brakes. Looking at the rotors they have areas that look rough in appearance as opposed to the swept look across the rotor surface that I'm accustomed to seeing.

So is this a characteristic of the Brembo brakes? Do I just need a few more miles on them? Is there a problem? Any advice, experience, comments are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Your brakes, pads & rotors are covered for 12,000 miles I believe. I would give them a little time to see if it gets worse. If no change by your first service, I would have the dealer take a look at them.
