I just put new pads on my car yesterday and now there is a burning smell coming from the brakes, almost like they are getting too hot. Is this just where they are new or what?

Yeah, bed them in... plus, if you used any grease (sometimes supplied by company) to lubricate the back side of the pads, and if it got onto the front (contact with rotor side), that could also explain the smell. It'll go away.
