GT Blackline Brake Problems

This is my first post so please be gentle on me!

I have had my 18 month old Blackline for just three weeks and it appears to be developing a brake problem. Initially this was stuttering when breaking at low speed but now I also have steering wheel judder when breaking (even gently) at high speed.
Any suggestions before I call the dealer?

Probably warped front brake discs. When brakes are hot, be careful not sit stationary with the brake pedal pressed for any amount of time, always apply the handbrake asap.

does sound like warped discs.
take it back. brakes are important.
btw great choice of car. I was gonna buy a 2nd hand blackline last christmas.
Then my boss said buy a new cloverleaf and have it on the company.

Thanks for all of the advice.
The dealer has changed the disks and pads under warranty so I am very happy.
Need to let them bed in a little before I try the high speed braking test to be 100% its fixed.
