Have you ever looked at a set of ls1 brake pads? They all have one side where a piece of metal sticks out off the edge, but doesn't protrude further than the pad material until the pad is almost completely worn. Your pad material has gone lower than the metal wear indicator piece which is causing the line digging into the rotor. It's time you replaced your rotors and pads
Brembo blank rotors are a great deal for the quality of rotor you are getting. You can get a set of cheaper drilled slotted wierd non-namebrand rotors as well, but you won't ever see those on my car. Check out the brake faq in this section and decide what you think is right for you. If I were daily driving, I'd probably just get some sort of cheaper duralast brakepad set for money reasons. For a good performance street set of pads, HPS you can't go wrong with.
