Omg 😲 surely covered by warranty, I'm just heading out to garage now I've covered less than 700 miles and like you I try to judge my stopping distance and utilise regenerative braking and tend not to stand on the brakes unless really need to, car I traded in was six years old and discs were smooth as a baby's bum πŸ˜€πŸ‘

The discs should be covered but pads no.

Just had a wee look, they're not looking that great but feel smooth, think it's maybe just the cheap materials used, will keep an eye out πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€

Rizmo if the discs are changed the pads have to be too as they would have less surface contact as the old pads would have bedded in to the grooving on the old discs, they all need binning. I'm sure pads would have to be covered due to the unusual wear even though they're classed a consumable item.
