Brake pads

You only replaced the pads? If this is the case you simply pump the brakes a few times to get the caliper Pistons to the proper place and get the pad next to the rotor. The first few pumps will feel weird. Once you can feel they are making contact then you can start the break in process.

Unless you disconnected the brake lines you should not have to bleed your brakes
