2004 TSX Burning smell; What to do

Hi:
The last few times I have used my 2004 TSX (w/53k miles), when I get back into my garage and get out, I smell a mild burning odor.
I have pulled out the oil and tranny fluid dipsticks and sniffed them but don't smell anything like a burning smell.
The oil temp gauge reads normal.
The oil, transmission fluid and brake fluid were replaced 6 months ago in June, 2018, about 1,500 miles ago.
There is nothing leaking from under the car.
Any ideas what this might be?
Do I need to rush out to my mechanic or can this wait a few weeks?

Thanks and Happy holidays!

Hi Kipsy:
I did the front rotors and pads in 2013 at 36k miles. Did rear pads in 2012 at 31k miles.

Caliper bolts could be sticking causing the rotors to burn up.
