Pad shapped marks on rotors

What causes the pad shaped marks on the rotors? It looks just like the edge profile of the pad. Is this caused by heat? Dirt? or what? You can feel the marks with your fingers and it will grab the rotors and give the pulse feeling in the steering wheel. Is there a way to remove it and prevent it?

Stuck caliper possibly

You could have a stuck caliper that is not releasing completely and caused the pads to wear down the rotor. As for the pulsation the rotor is warped and needs to be replaced. Ive tried to turn them before and they just warp again very quickly. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

Pads were new about 11 months ago and still look new. If you scape at it it comes off. Almost like the pad got burnt or melted to the rotor. Rotors may be warped but turning it by had it grabs right where the marks are.

I am surprised it has lasted after you applied the brakes ?
you can clean the rotor and lightly sand them to see if it returns

I thought about that. Was just trying to figure out what it actually was.
