Frozen Rear Brake Pad to Rotor

I've never experienced this with any other car I've own. Last Friday, after the car sat for 3 weeks, I put the car in gear and heard a loud pop from the rear. It sounded like a tooth on a ring gear had sheared off. Drive off and when applying the brakes I hear on uneven roar form the rear. Like a bad wheel bearing Next morning upon further inspection...I can see the the outside brake pad had left a "rusty" uneven low spot on the rotor. I've been driving it for a week...noise is slowing fading...once the rotor evens out it should be gone.

Has anyone experienced this with their 2016 second gen, RDX??

Are the rotors covered under warranty??

Brakes are consumables.. won't be covered under warranty. Perfectly fine to drive on..
